My new toy

A few pics of Cariboo Too, my new Walker Bay Generation 430. Hoping to get it wet at the weekend. Only one little niggle so far, the cup holders are designed to hold buckets rather than champagne flutes

Easily solved - just buy bigger/more bottles of champagne and get glasses to match (lead in here for a specsavers joke )

Bloody brilliant ! Love it

I'm thinking of suggesting a small boat 'night' cruise from Poole to Wareham ( for foor and drink ) and back...

If your up for a gentle tow to the west sometime let me know.

Er, the far locker in which photo? Must admit there is loads of storage, including the 'bootlid' on the back end that lifts to reveal deep stowage spaces either side of the engine well.

Thanks Peter, I'm rather pleased with it, though the acid test (so to speak) is yet to come.

I could be up for such a cruise, though I need to fit a plotter/sounder and get used to the boat before venturing into unfamiliar waters - especially at night!

Or forget the glasses and chug from the bottle.
