He he...

I often feel you southern folks live in a different world to me. I paid Humber about 8k for my 8.5 hull and tubes. Of course, Scorp owners enjoy being taken for a ride....see what I did there...

'course we live in a different world.

You're a beardie weirdie drinking real ale, listening to folk music whilst carving out a mermaid for the new bowsprit on your self-build whilst your wife stitches new elbow patches on your best corduroy jacket.

I'm sitting here sipping the remains of a bottle of Bolly whilst Louise paints her toenails reclining on the designer sofa in our penthouse apartment. I need a supplier who can deliver a quality job, right first time, on time.

And if you believe a single word of that...

Ah... you got me!

But seriously, there's a question of comparing like for like here. If I remember correctly, one of the first jobs you did on the Humber was to cut out the floor to fit the fuel tanks? And you commented that it was frightening to observe how little there was below deck - ie no stringers, no longitudinals, no bracing for the hull.

And are your tubes one piece or sectional?

Jeff.

Either you have a typo there, incredible negotiating skills or inflation is higher than I thought! Apparently an 8.5m humber (no engine) has a RRP of 22k.

the advert doesn't say - just says "open deck" in the "seating/layout" box so sounds like hull and tubes. But there is a slightly smaller one listed with a RRP of 22.5k with the following spec: Dual cruise console c/w low level windscreen, upholstered twin front seat and back pad, Sea Star steering, 2 x One man extreme jockey seat moudles. Tube specfication 1100dtx fabric, pressure relief valves, 7 air chambers, external life lines & grab handles, reinforced bow. Under deck 200 litre fuel tank, under deck cable trunking. Additional seating available upon request That boat is on sale for about 17k... so thats a lot of money for minimal fitting out!

Correct.

It's reassuring to know you too suffer from senior moments. I did not say that and I knew exactly what was under the floor. It would be a bit foolhardy to cut just anywhere with a chainsaw. You could do with revisiting the build thread.

Is that significant?
