Mmmm... and that looks like an Admiral trailer its sitting on! Just picked one up for mine and very pleased with it. Some nice touches like a locking hitch, metal mudguards that you can stand on and a two speed winch with removable handle and a winch brake.

Don't leave the handle on the winch in a boat yard or mariner they seem to grow legs and walk whilst you're out on the water.

Kevin had just come in from Sea trialing that boat when we picked up ours and said it did well over 70mph.
What an awesome boat.
