Thank you for your welcome. Visited your site - great info and great to start dreaming of all the 'stuff' we are gonna need - just need the boat now but it was good to hear that it took you 12 months (we are not the only ones...).

Not really. The FAQ never really took off because it's a bit cumbersome to maintain, so it's just down to searching things out at the moment.

Having easier access to all the information here is something that I'm working on.

Thanks John. No problem - I fully understand (maintain a number of websites and they are no where near as busy as this one - admin nightmare).

I do love this website though and I have already learnt a lot - or even better know where I can look when I need info.

Nice boat, but then I'm biased as far as 5.85 meter boats go.

And there's the thing. All my engines have had a fuel consumption similar to that and it's also not far off what most folk with the new fancy engines seem to be getting. I reckon some of them wear rose-tinted specs.

Hi Chris

Lovely boat, unfortunately it is beyond my budget. I just have to keep watching that lottery ticket - but thanks for thinking of me.

When you drive a Landrover Discovery V8 Auto I think that Rose tinted glasses are a must...

Any glasses will do..............





............ as long as there is a bit of tape over the bit of lens where you would normally see the fuel gauge.
