From the outside Neil, she appears to ride pretty much the same as before, which is quie a feat given how much of my crap you had onboard

'Was'?

I know you shouldn't be able to get the rail under on a 26' yacht in a F2-or have a badger fart at it in that F2 and it come close to laying down...

expensive joke
Hammer past your mates at 30kn with the sails flapping ,bloody funny the first few times that you do it.
But then the joke wears off and you've still got the thing.
Doesn't sail like a proper sailing boat and doesn't motor like a proper motor boat (rib!)
So that's why there's always hundreds for sale.
Perhaps best to pay a grand to hire one for the afternoon so that you can do the 30kn flapping sails joke then give it back.
Cheaper than owning one

Hey that's a business idea for someone !!

Work has progressed a bit, but only externally. Biffs has had a screen made and fitted, and made & fitted the stainless rails for the roof, as well as finished off the gelcoat work round the wheel moulding and door cutout, plus some other gelcoat finishing jobs

Internally it will get done when I get back to UK for (hopefully) a few months

Biff... you still got that pic from last time I was at yours?

If not, I'll post when I next get back to UK and find the pics on other PC

Cheers

Neil
