On that 6.5 it has a very high bow sheer, is that standard? I am surprised he can see where he is going.

Love the look of those Excaliburs!
What sort of speed do you get out of your 6.8 with the diesel?

I'm getting just over 33 knots at the mo, but the previous owner says I should get 36, 37. So the filters are going to be changed this weekend

Sweet photos Jon. Nice to meet you in Baltimore.

Heard ye leaving too, it was hard not to, turbos whistling and all! The yams seem quiet enough on board but boy are they loud from behind!!There was a lot of envious people in Baltimore I'll tell ya that much.

Did ye make it out to the Fastnet at all? We managed to get on it, on the Monday, it was eerily calm out there.
