I was out on Graham's (former) boat on Monday. It's awesome!
Very similar colour scheme. The seating colours will be different but I shall keep the same layout. I shall also have a radar arch and radar, which is where the similarity between boats ends.
Radar should be pretty useful around the Channel Islands, when seeking out cheap fuel! It does tend to get a bit foggy over there, as I am sure you know.
I have chosen the conventional hull, as I can live without the extra 3 kts or so that the stepped hull may offer (for quite a bit more cash) and I know that the Scorpion hull design is well tried, tested and loved by all.
Only 9 months to go!
