Would shaft length be an issue with a single engine?

Interesting thought I had when the MOD say fully loaded does that mean 10 togged up and tooled up bootnecks, their toys , 400 ltres of fuel and a Coxswine and mate

That's gotta be getting on for 2 ton, If you trimmed a ton out of that payload I wonder what yoiuld get from less power

Pete

I'm very tempted to go and have a look.

Had better stop off at the garage for some flowers for Mrs Nasher on the way home though.

Course not.

Now all I need is to find a nicely shaped Cabin cruiser/rag and stick boat thats been run aground so I can cut the top off and glass it down to the deck.

Now I should get on with some work rather than dream about bigger boats.

Might still go and have a look though.

Think thats one of Phils adverts. Stu knows him quite well. Problem is though what happens when oil goes to USD200 a barrel still as Nasher plans you could always stick a mast on it and sail away.
