Was that one of those that if you flipped it upside down there was a good chance of the (soon to be ex)wife just dropping out through the canopy ?
After which you can simply land and claim on the insurance for a new canopy ( and wife ) ?
The running costs of a bigger boat are one of the reasons I probably wont go back to 200hp machine . Maybe I am getting old , but I get great satisfaction out of crawling up the river at 4knts , and am happy at 20knts using relatively nothing in petrol in a boat I can keep at home for nothing, and service everything myself on ( if I had the time & wanted to ).
