Pretty cool. It's going to have been meticulously kept. Not cheap to run, but what a boat.

It's going to have been serviced and cleaned by the book. It's also going to have been started and run at WOT from cold EVERY time it's been used.

Indeed. They eat those Detroit engines on a regular basis (or at least our local units do). When they're running, the boat does about 17kts at WOT burning a MASSIVE amount of fuel - I have no idea how much but refuelling conversations employ tons, not litres!

Inside they are cramped and noisy, there is no head or galley. They were originally designed to be self righting but after deployment it was discovered that they were only "mostly" self righting, and so a self righting bag was strapped to the rear compartment, rigged to a "Jesus!" button in the main wheelhouse.

As a rescue vessel - very good indeed although dated.
As a pleasure craft - nasty.

I think I could find other ways to spend 150k which would make the 99.99999999999999% of boat trips which are the right way up a better experience.

I like the "utilitarian" styling, and the sea keeping is obviously very good - but the ex ALBs I've seen converted to leisure use are a massive compromise. Lets be honest 99% of us would never use one in conditions that justified the sea keeping pedigree anyway.

True. I've driven one for a MOB recovery exercise - surprisingly I was able to get alongside the dummy without too much faffing about, so they must be fairly forgiving...

You could be right, but I'm lost in the math.
