Hi,
and thanks. New one.
I can get the Tornado for a really good price and i thought they only produce the tubes in china. Factory is still in Hull. Is this not right?
Boat should not over 16.000-18.000,-- without engine.

we have a 4.5 Tornado as a safetyboat for our dinghy courses, bought it at the London show earlier this yr and very happy with it. I previously had a fleet of them at a centre I used to run and can't sing their praises enough, however Barnett Marine who have been selling Tornados for the last 20 yrs have recently parted ways- no idea why but may be something toi do with moving factories.
