New boat

Wow !
I dropped a customer off at Heathrow yesterday and REALLY didn't know what way to turn out of Terminal 5....Left to the boat show or right and home to Cambridge. Bloody glad I turned right as I know I would have done the same and my mrs would have made my life even more of a living hell !!
Have loads of fun and I will keep scouring all the scam ads for a new boat just outside my budget..

Enjoy!!
Me too, I thought you were about to show us a key ring - which in a way you have, a very fine looking boat, with two keys on the end to make it go...

I need to find a nice big empty lake where I can have a go with it first.

Im not sure just how fast it will go - Ive read an artical that talks about 63 knots in the rough and 70 in smooth conditions !

Id better start saving now for the fuel bills.

I also need a towbar, boat cover, insurance, and probably a whole list of other things that I dont even know about yet.

Careful with the insurance, many only cover you for coastal waters up to 10 miles offshore, and will only pay market value in case of a total loss. Make sure you get adequate cruising limits & an agreed value.

Ps I doubt you'll find any lake in the UK that will let you do justice to your new toy, you need salt water. Don't know where you are, but the Menai is about the closest you'll find to a decent lake.

When you're looking for insurance make sure you tell them how fast it is.
Many policies / insurers won't insure boats over 50 knots - or impose additional conditions.
Tell them at the outset then it avoids difficult conversations if you need to make a claim.
