Manos You couldn't compromise the Hull integrity of a Pacific with a few grammes of C4, they are hugely strong boats and the decks more of a covering than a stuctural item. The stringers are made by GRP covered 4 by 2 mahogany

I.ve always been impressed by these boats and working on this one has told me why.

Mr. 7 is a very accurate and precise worker and it's been a pleasure to help him, I am learning a lot

Well done Pete for not mentioning what uyou saw on Saturday evening

Go on Pete, do tell. Just cos' he helped you with your boat shouldn't let him off the hook.

Oi Stuart, do you still want this fuel tank?

yes Dave I do thanks,

We saw a racing boat that had the outboard bracket sheared off on it's maiden voyage. It was obviously a bad casting but the driver an navigator had to be towed in by a sailing yacht.

The irony is in who the navigator was and I stress it wasn't his fault

cheers
Stuart

What a great conversion. Ever thought of getting a job at Halmatic or even with Manos.
(sorry Manos but you deserved that)
cheers Phil

Didn't know I was merely making a comment and it was a thought nothing more.

Phil funny you should say that, I work along side but not for there parent group Vosper Thornycroft. Couldn't work for Manos as I can only lay fibreglass in straight lines not curves like Falcon.

(Sorry Manos, couldn't resist it after you posted that pic of the inside of a Falcon. I look forward to seeing one of these Falcons in the flesh and you making me eat my words).

Pete

Pete7 you have certanly worked very hard on the boat and got her into the best nick you can.

My question is would you do it again and how much have you spent.I did the same thing with a yacht and it took me 12 yrs and I loved it,but I lost money when I sold her.

Would you do it again?

We are all different and I can say haveing looked at your pics and the amount of pride/work you have put into her then good luck and I hope you enjoy it,and I look forward to seeing her on the water.
