New Verado 250s

After 3000 hours (only about 300 of them ours) and a bit earlier than I wanted, we had to pull the trigger and purchase a new set of 250 Verados. We wanted to go to the 300s, but they weren't in stock locally.

So here they are, looking a bit shinier than the last set but otherwise almost identical! New throttle binnacle (which doesn't work with the 2009 harness btw) as well.

Hopefully now this will give us a year (under warranty) or two of running, when we can sell them and upgrade to the 300s!

Finished and launched this morning, I'm sure they've already surpassed the break-in period and are now enjoying them - they are off to Rose Island and Highbourne Cay (Exuma, Bahamas) with a film crew from ITV.

Cheers to a great summer!
