What about 45 degrees bow DOWN?

So,

You've got the level drop and 45 degrees stern down covered - what about 45 degrees bow down?

Streuth Cookie - is that one of the ones you were trying to position as a 'family-friendly' boat?!

Some of the shots look like they're in Salcombe estuary, so are you in fact attempting to evade the Harbour Master.

Look forward to seeing you in 'live action' (as the bishop said to the actress!!) on Salcombe estuary this summer.

It shows that even if you get a bit wild with it the hull will stand up to the punishment - 5 year hull warranty!

If you see me ask for a sea trial!

The other question are :
- can it accept an extra 110hp like the Solent 6m?
- has it been dropped yet?
