Itís a fantasy 10000 Sports Pro. Fitted with quadruple Diesel V48 Verados capable of 200 knots at a litre a mile and rather than onboard electronics it has a geostationary satellite receiving high speed streamed data direct from a dedicated control room in NASA

or am I just dreaming Des

Ah now is that v1.3, v1.4 or 1.4a? It's just that v1.3 fixed the non starter bug and added in numerous new functions including virtual propellor and the throttle dial now goes up to 11.

v1.4 however has several new bugs including: Won't hot start, fuel leek, auto yachty abuse and auto eject navigator. However have fixed geostationary uplink to include freeview (chargeable by sky later in the autumn).

v1.4a Fixes all the above and add's pretty lady in cockpit. However it is not a free upgrade and you'll have to pay for a new license.

Itís all of that and more, each engine was hand stripped by beautiful Tahitian maidens before being blueprinted by Zen Buddhist monks assisted by vestal virgins on an undiscovered mountain in Tibet

Each strand of fibre glass in the hull was laid by a Feng Shui expert before the resin was applied by someone who has never had a evil thought using a feather from the last dodo

The positioning of the console took a 20 strong team of engineers ten weeks to find the optimum position before a technician just placed where he thought it looked best

The hull was polished using the same technique that was used to polish the mirror of the Hubble telescope

The seats are made from leather only taken the armpits of new born Connelly calves and the steering wheel and throttle lever took 50 Swiss watch makes their whole lives just to ensure the controls worked, well, just like a Swiss watch

and Iím not even going to start on the attention to details in the ball room didnít I mention it had a ball room
