My 8.1 metre, stepped Hull Scorpion arrives tomorrow, ordered after the advice obtained from all you guys on the forum. I am very happy with my deal, she is called Tickled Pink, the first stepped Hull model in 5 years and used as the demo boat for the past three months. She runs with a 225 Mercury and full electronics.
I am very excited and keeping my fingers crossed for weather that is at least bearable over the weekend.
Once again thanks for all your advice and I hope to meet some of you during the summer of 2005.
