"Quick One"

It has been a perfect day....

Spent the night in a hotel overlooking the chain ferry in Pool Harbour. Woke up to stunning views of Studland, Old Harry etc. glistening in the sun light and then took a leisurely drive to Lymington, where I ordered my new Scorpion RIB!

It will be an 8.1, with a 250 E-tec.

With a 50 kt + top speed, the name "Quick One" seems perfect too!



Delivery late April 2006.

Chris.

Thanks Guys!

Hi Scotty - The Zodiac was the tender to my last boat, which I sold in 2002.

Back to reality tomorrow - work in London!

I look forward to seeing some of you out on the water next year.

Cheers!

Chris.

Cheers Brambles!

You're obviously someone with discerning tastes!

BTW, has anyone had a problem with editing posts recently? I missed the "e" off "Poole" in my first post but wasn't able to edit it.

Regards,

Chris.
