Or a clear perspex 'boot lid' with 'Testa rossas' red heads.

That looks bang on attracting a bit of attention already I see

Are those near vertical spray rails running all the way up the stem designed to do a specific job?

Looking great

Can't help but disagree with Zippy though, I think it will look even better with tubes on it

As a Marathon boat we are expecting to have to cope with some serious conditions - where to end spray rails is always a difficult one for a designer and whilst they are there for a reason we were fully aware it would make the bow very unique - I guess that means you're all correct!

Hightower - just let me know which engine configuration you want, send me a deposit and we'll start on your boat!

Might as well push the boat out. How about a nice Lamborghini V12, get one of those in? Perhaps Twins

I'm saving for the deposit! I'm up to about 150

To be honest the Lambos are a bit noisy and just end up giving you a headache and two are twice as noisy! 525's are more reliable and would get you into triple digits and V8's don't sound like they're about to explode the whole time!

Hey 150 is a start!
