A hand-me-down. I do not need, nor want a phone of such standard for myself, but, thanks to two parents with regular business upgrades, I do not complain when the old ones are passed down.

I may be very privileged, but I'm not spoilt.

The Zodiac launching platform is an interesting idea and would appear ideal for sibs. However, I don't think it would work with a PWC that weighs 500kg. You might just be able to winch it aboard but you'd never get it back in again. At least with a crane you could get a bike or a quad on the boat if need be. Out of interest, does anyone know how much those Zodiac Mach IIs cost, or how much a Ribcraft 12m costs for that matter?

Zodiac Hurricane Mach II - at least $250,000 I would have thought

Ribcraft 12m - at least 100,000 bearing in mind the prices of Redbays of the same size

...which run from 150k-200k

Quality - it's hard to put a Value on it

Waaaaaay too practical.

Incidentally, you remember our little disagreement over the little flap at the nose of the pro? Well there's a new hypalon 470 at our boat yard that has had the flap ripped off. The tubes are under so much tension with the air inside that the bottom of the tube is a good 3 inches above the fibreglass. Obviously the boat cannot go out as it is, but with just the main body of the flap (sans strap) I reckon it would be fine. I'll get a pic when were next out there
