Yes - often stated as the 4x4 of the sea - I spent a lot of time in a Targa 35 many moons ago and was seriously impressed - from my perspective the only down side to a Targa is they hold their resale value too well which means I can't afford one

Conversely though, family friend bought one, owned it for 1.5 seasons and sold for similar money.

MOB on feeder leg - pics

St Davids Lifeboat have sent me some pics taken from the lifeboat, just after the Seaking had winched me back into my Rib.
I took a crew member onto my Rib for the journey back to Milford Haven.
Interesting for me to see how close I had drifted to the Smalls lighthouse by the time I was recovered.
Another hour or two and I may have made land ! or rock !
