New Scorpion, collect this weekend!!

Well the new boat is ready! Getting out of work early today to head south and collect the new boat, perfect as the weather is now decidedly cold

However all being well I will get at least a few days before the snow starts falling in the frozen North..

Sold in July, this one is an 8.5 metre non stepped. A bit slower I expect but more relaxing over a distance and the engine torque should make things easier too.

I guess it was a toss up between 'Happy Hours' and 'Scarlet'?

Are you trailering her home or going by sea? Has GJ sea-trialled her yet? What top speed do you get/expect?

Click the quote button. Erase the bits you don't want. Mark the text you want to quote, click the icon that looks like a square speech bubble. Do this for each quote and write your response between the quotes.

She has been trialled but not heard results yet, weather being kind I will sail her home and collect car and trailer later in the week...

Nice one Ollie. Think I saw her in the workshop last Tuesday when we went down for a play on the Pioneer.

Happy Times

Regards
