Here's a few pics of what Codprawn considers to be a 'pretty' basic boat. I'd like to see what he considers a sophisticated boat.

1. The first privately owned C27 to be imported into the UK
2. Sliplock on the bow. Drive the boat onto the trailer and it hooks itself on.
3. Foldaway bottle racks.

By the way they are NOT girders but large bits of aluminium tube!!!

As to the suspension deck it is actually a "spongy" deck - same sort of material used in trainers etc!!!

Don't get me wrong it IS a great boat but I still reckon most of the top British builders could have done the same for a lot less money!!!

That is a nice looking boat

Question though, why is the spare wheel for the trailer mounted on top of the A-frame?

This is getting out of hand... now we have spongey decks ( ex Nike)....
A frames built like the eifel tower..... I suppose the next thing will be a pressurised compartment to allow for faulty valves ( my sincere apologies to the 128 odd people who perished on a 737 Helios type Ryan air cheaper than
a No7 bus from Brixham to ...

But Codders , is that YOU in the photoshot? a yes or no is aLL that is required.
