At a 130mph that shouldn't take long at all!

I hope you enjoyed the slipway side show!

I brought the wife's yacht alongside on Saturday for fitting the sails and cushions after a couple of aborted attempts due to tide and someone else leaving the batteries on. We witnessed some fine examples of muppetry including a quite badly damaged Salcombe yawl that narrowly missed but collided with the works going on to fish quay in quite a spectacular fashion. That was only one of 5 or 6 examples of what could best be described as slightly sub-standard seamanship!

It runs 1200hp Teague custom built engines on whipple superchargers with Mercury racing drives. Yes it has the Ocke Mannerfelt wing package which can be closed for docking.

Thanks Steve - we love the car as a family machine.

Cookie - I'll ensure the beer is still working in the pubs while you're away. Good luck in the racing
