Willk, if you were to be around tomorrow at the show about 10 then you could have the pleasure to strip her

I will post the photos tomorrow when I get back from the show which is going to be rather late as I will be travelling home each day

Thanks to all you had a contribution in the choice of colours etc as I am very pleased with the result. I believe most of you will be as well.

Mind you can't wait to take her out into the Solent. That will have to wait till after the show and very soon after

Much appreciated, but if I were in Southampton tomorrow, I would be at the Suzuki stand leaning on the Round Ireland 950, flicking inky blotting paper at you across the aisle - all in the Spirit of Fun & Competition, you understand

and if you were to pop down to the Suzuki bar to enjoy a drink you would have no choice but to look at the back of our stand where on the back of our exhibition trailer in full view and in large scale you would be seeing a mighty Parker 1000 Baltic with twin Mercury Verado 300 out in heavy seas. You would then for sure be thinking - what a good job Andre did not take that beast round Ireland- off course all in the Sprit of fun & Competition which we both very much understand

good to see you today Andre, the boat looks good, you were right about that wear patch stuff, I went back to look at the tread master after seeing yours, and the stuff you use feels nicer.

Thanks for stopping by. I thought we had a very interesting conversation.
Are you already back in Ireland. Seems a short visit to the show.
