No no no no no no!

No matter what boat, never work out what it costs in boat price + insurance + trailering + upgrades + maintainance!

Our little Ocean does some serious sea miles, we do all the servicing in our own workshop and all the equipment is sourced direct from the manufacturer; she saves us time and money because inter-island flights are so expensive PLUS it brings in survey and training revenue and we STILL would not do that sum.

You can start on that particular piece of math as soon as you tell us what you need all those shoes for....

*Pennies per mile* indeed! Here we were treating you like one of the lads and all the while you were a viper in our bosom!

Did Apollo tot the costs as he steered his blazing chariot through the Heavens? So too do we Ribsters blaze our routes across the Oceans (Ok, The Solent, some of you) and give no thought to base lucre

Impressive stuff, wow!
Just a note of caution though, the positionioning of the all round white light should be at a height of not less that 2.5 m above the gunwale & at least 1 m higher than the sidelights. In its current position the horizontal & vertical sectors which are obscured by the headlights, gps receiver & the active x will be quite significant (as they are very close to the light). When you are seen from another vessel in the sector in which the all around while light is obscured & the sidelights are visible you will (should) be interpreted as being a sailing vessel!
