Nice photo Barabarossa. I got a very old MARCO 4mtr conntional with a 35bhp Envirude similar to the Jonson that you have there. I got this boat to go fishing. It was 2nd habd and cost with engine and trailer Euro 500!! Good price I think.

Regarding meltemi is not that bad. If early in the moring about 7:30-8 o'clock you are ok. Also if late in the evening about 5:30-6pm is ok too.

The sea in the Aegean it doesn't get that big maximum wave hight is about 2 mtrs and that is if it blows gale forse 8+.
Usually is about 0.5-1.5 mtrs in Kavo Doro.

There are days in the summer not more than 5-10 in total (and not consecuitive) that it blows force 8-9. And although you cannot make a long trip is ok if you round th coves. Aegean is not a humid as the Ionian and I like this dry atmosphere better.

I was just telling Gabriele about you that you have joined this forum He is thinking VERY SERIOUSLY to come to Santorini in the summer. Possibly take the boat and car to cape Sounion and leave the car and trailer in my house and travel on the boat to Santorini Just 90 miles and about 3.5-4 hrs on an average day.

Good the price of the package.
The Mar.co detachable is the descandent of Laros Pirelli.
Thank you for availability for support for the raid to Santorini bat my wife has not the maturity for a cruise in Cyclades.

OK Barabarossa I understand.
Whenever you think that you are ready for trip we will be there. Have to say that women don't like these long trips very much. I have my own expereiences with my wife LOLOL
The price of the MAR CO gommone was very good and the boat is in very good condition taking into account its age. The tubes have a lot of life in them yet. The valves are made from steal (or a very strong metal) and the engine works like a dream.
I took the stearing wheel and controls off and I just use the tiller instead.
It does about 35 knots flat out and is like a go cart in the sea!!
I was talking to Gabriele for you and he told me about Volavia's Project Forum. You have a PM.
Any way have a good weekend and talk next week.

Hi Luigi I looked at the PM send you one back. No problem you will do it when you are ready. The photo of the boat unfortunately is in Greece I do not have it here in England. I will post it when I go there next week.

What this means

"I took the stearing wheel and controls off and I just use the tiller instead."

is this

Ho preso la rotella di direzione ed i comandi fuori ed io utilizziamo appena l'attrezzo preferibilmente."

Hope my Italian is understandable. Haven't written Italina for a very long time.
