Sums it up nicely, I think and it was a hoot going down the river Itchen sideways

However, with the current re-build and some tweeks it could be brilliant boat with a draft measuring in inches.

I think it did end up with Jamie (second hand rib dealer on the Itchen). He also had a rather rare 24ft Pacific in yellow, but wanted serious cash for that which was too rich for us.

First sea trail yesterday and all went very well, everything worked as it should and she really goes well even tho I just poddled about double checking everything as we know she's not been used in around 10 years but when I did open her up she was straight up on the plan and around 25knots 3/4 throttle so looks like she will do her rated 30knots, very impressed and can't wait to get her out in a big sea !!!
