I've had it about six months. Can't really comment on handling yet as I've havnt used it much (givevn the nasty cold wet weather!)
As for quality, I'm still trying to decide; some of the features of the design are a little less than perfect, like the black bits of stuff they put round the grab ropes on the side (they rub on the tubes leaving nasty black marks).
And speed, not quite sure; havn't got any way of telling. However, it feels like it's going pretty fast with a 40hp!
You're really pushing yours with that 60hp. Do you have insurance?

I've never seen a pen of it. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist though.

Chandlers stock small tins of both types of paint.

Clean the tube, mark the outline of the letters onto the tube, line in the outside edge using a small brush (a wee water colour brush) and fill in the rest. You'll be surprised how well it will look.

Black vinyl

Not sure if they can help, but you could try Havant Signs & Plastics or Eberhart (sp?) Signs in Pompey.

for Carbon Fibre vinyl. They probably do other colours too, but I don't have the mail-order catalogue at hand so am not positive. Quick delivery times too.

Naming of Boats

Tim, to come back to part of your original question, I get my names from Norse and Celtic mythology, Hence "Keltoi" is the Roman and Greek word for the mad naked warriors from the west, assumed to be Celts.
