The college assignments are being piled up at the moment so I tend to be kept busy most wkends.
Agghh, I remember the days well. A wee while ago though. Wouldn't wish them on anybody again. Not when you can have a pressure job, a hugh bloody mortage, borrowings for a car, shed, lawnmower, wife ,kids & more importantly a new rib etc. Why would i go back??????

Thats right the engine is the ME421 (240hp), Top end lightly loaded is about 45 knots! Not much of a difference between light and loaded speed.

Must arrange a bit of a run down west shortly, I'm sure most of the cork ribers will be interested!
