Are but not the Tohatsu, lean, mean and very very quick. In fact it could even put a smile on Jonny Fullers face, no mean achievement at the moment. You should come out on her some time, I am sure you would recognise the predigree hull lines.

Torqin of boats Jon, do you have one or is that a new yellow fish pond in yer garden ?

He can't slow down much or he'd be going backwards with the tide.

Yes, I have taken an enlightened view, and realised it's not quite the miami vice that I wanted. I'm dreaming of great powerboat clubs but in truth the average boat in this country is a 17 foot fletcher.

Sadly only too true, however for the price of a fletcher you could drop a pair of mermaids in her and be running on 20ppl.

Anyway back to the real question why was I banned from Boatmad. (Am I going to do a Geremy Paxton to get an answer on this ?)

Cos you were trying to get banned and it would have been a shame to disappoint you.

Let's face it, 400hp would not cut it.
I wouldn't have bought the boat if it only had 400hp.
Peninsular 400TT - 400hp, 463kg Much better!!!!
