Sounds like a good excuse for business being quiet to me!

How have your expectations compared to reality this summer?

'Reality'!... I hope you don't expect a sensible answer Jono! It's not one of Manos's fields of expertise.

Given that the Phalcons are being sold with zero, 6 and 33 hrs respectively, I'm guessing that it wasnt that busy a summer after all

Alan you are a sad case

But never the less why they are sold as they are is a valid question by far deviating from JK's unusual (very unusual) venture but any way will explain.

One of the boats did not make it to Greece before the middle of the summer. When it arrived it had a damaged leg, chips on the hull and generally it was in a mess. By the time we changed the leg and put a new one and made the boat as a boat suppose to be it was too late to even consider putting it in the water.
The second boat was damaged after the 1st day it went out. By the time again we did all the repairs it was too late.
We had another 3 boats one Falcon 640, one Watercraft 6.5 mtrs and one Predator 6.5 mtrs which we charted non stop all summer.
We have decided that will not have any Falcons next year.

Satisfied now?

Oh jolly good. Glad to hear that business went well. Bet the folks who chartered the watercraft had a blast what with its med styling and features.

I know I'm sad. But you know what would cheer me up? I love those Scorpion RIBS. Could you post a picture of yours?

Thanks in advance

Sorry to disappoint you Alan. The boat is in Greece and I'm in the UK. Unless you want to pay for my ticket to go there for a weekend and indulge you I'm afraid that you will have to wait till next April

PS If you are interested is for sale Euro 45,000.00 plus Euro 1,800.00 delivery UK anywhere. Not exactly what I wanted I'm affraid
