I will start again.

I think The Prowave and the Europa are identical and are both shanghai specials.

I have the Prowave 3.8 Ali floor and its been good to me and done what I've asked of it.

The depreciation is a good point though, neither will hold there value.

There's pictures of mine on my profile.

Im very happy with my Europa. Good build quality. Don't discount the offerings from the east. Honwave, Tohatsu all come from there.

The reason the bow looks low in the last photo is because the painter is tight wrapped around the prop pulling it down. Lesson learnt, make the painter length no longer than the boat.So when a arse allows said painter to drag into the water the engine want come to a shattering halt in the middle of the Forth.

And the best of all is it can fit into the back of a golf. Although would be easier on a trailer with my heavy lump of a Johnson
