Checkout the Parker Pilothouse and Weekend boats on Sussex Boat Shop and in the latest PBR magazine there is a boat test of the Parker 660 Pilothouse
Andre, is this the dark side of yours?

[QUOTE=Bigmuz7;525973][QUOTE=Poly;525929]Nor did I see any mention of a "head" which I think may also put off the more delicate visitors!

Funny how it goes ? some of our wimmen social lot would just appreciate the 'getting to where we go' and find a place to do the business.. others wont go unless its 'shanks' finest .. .. and was made in the town in which I have resided for 20years .. I think the girls need to man up a little and just get on with things, and dispense with the fluffy bits of life
Ah well I am inclined to agree, but in my view if you want to sleep on board then you need (1) A kettle/stove of some sort (2) Some form of crapper! This should preferably not involve standing outside in the rain at 3 am nor sleeping in the same enclosed space as a chemical toilet.

I will check them out when I can. Do they do a pilot house in the region of 5m? 660 may be a little over the 1.5 ton limit all up for my licence.
does the bitly link work: Sussex Boat Shop or see attachment!

I like it. Plenty days I've been out in bleed'n miserable weather and wondered why I put myself through it. Somewhere to get a brew would be on my list. Regards sleeping in it... unless its calm, the water will slap off the hull and echo in the little cabin. Could probably use stound-proofing. Okay if you've had a few beers I'm sure!

Seating seems restricted on deck would be my only criticism.

Bridger Marine has a Quicksilver 580 which might be of interest?

Small world Markboyo and Rogue wave.
I spent 6 years rotating out of Angola working onshore in Sonils base. I was Field Serivce Manager for BP Block 18 for FMC. I had crew on the Sedco Express, DeepSea Stavanger when she took over, Bourbon 101, Seven Pacific, Russell Tide and bourbon jade at various times.

Back to the thread, I have had open ribs, a 7.4 redbay cabin rib then moved on to hard boats, can't beat the ribs for fun and hard boats for facilities.

Wife and I very pleased with the Princess I have now, but loved the cabin rib, fitted warm air heating to the cabin for comfort and had a lot of fun.

All comes down to budget and the type of boating you do. Buying the boat is the easy bit, it's the maintaining, storage and extra fuel costs that are the killer.

Secretly miss the buzz of open ribbing though....

One of each is the answer, works for me anyway

Going WAFI is a step too far though...maybe when the worlds supply of fossil fuels has completely disappeared but hopefully by then there'll be a DIY retro-fit nuclear reactor kit on the ASAP website

Speaking of which....

You need to start using Martini II a bit more.... Things are slowing down here at the refinery! :-)

Hows the RR doing anyway.... Better now?

My fault, apparently you're supposed to change the oil and filter now and then

Under the rocker covers it was so gunged up and full of carp I'm surprised the engine still turned over

V happy with the mechanic, just started up on his own around the corner from me and used to work for an independent LR garage. Sorting out the oil problem with new hoses and pressure valve, rocker gaskets etc, flush engine, new oil and filter, fix coolant leak, new starter motor and fixed recurring suspension fault code - 600 parts and labour
