Wow I'm glad I never posted my wind up about having put my deposit back in the bank after the seaworthiness demonstration of not showing up !!!

Minor sense of humour failure there kitten

In reality - we were all very sad when we saw the conditions as we expected you wouldn't come down (I don't think anyone else would have either - well except me - but i'm raving mad) and I think we were all really looking forward to seeing the boat in the flesh.

Sadness didn't last long though as we had a blast with a short but very exciting trip from Falmouth to the Helford river.

It was a great review and its an awesome and very unique looking boat. I'm sure we will get a chance to see one in the summer (if not before).

How many of these things are actually out on the water - or is this demonstrator the first one ?

kitten is indeed a very good humoured person who has a wealth of knowledge about boats and has a lot of experience on seas most of us may never see.

Brilliant design ideas also.


Happy New Resolutions!!! : RIBbing for the craic!!!

OK I bit, so I'm a pollock.
Roy at the moment she's abit like highlander there is only one. As soon as we have finished the builds we are commited to work can start modifying moulds to sort out a few minor build problems, refine the finish and fitout then there will be more.
But I may be talking Rubbish.
Expurt is a drip under pressure, and the difference between an Amateur and a proffesional is getting paid.
