We came over Saturday for a bit of shopping and lunch.
Got a bit nasty on the way home, but you know its a Scorpion so it was fun....
Was looking forward to seeing your boat, but it wasn't there. We will be over again soon..

The SeaStar power steering has taken some getting used to - it's finger light, but also doesn't react to waves, which makes for much less effort in big seas. It's almost like auto-pilot.

I'm in love.
What pitch prop are you using? And what make?

Pics of Freetraders Scorp.

Here are some pics of Freetraders Scrop which were taken by some friends of mine whilst I was on board the beast. Just an awesome Rib. (Want one)
I hope to see some more pics of her soon when Phil gets out on her! also when she is sitting on her new Versadock!

Cheers,

Nick
