Looks like the union are going for the Mariner, cos it's slightly cheaper. They upped my budget, so I added some bits!

Cheers for all your comments guys!

Tim, you should join the sailing club, it's a laugh!

The reason for the 2-3 week completion date (and also the reason why it's a ribcraft not an XS) is that Jason from Ribcraft just got in touch to let me know they had 3 hulls due to go to scandanavia that had a change of spec, and would I like one! It means they aren't our preferred colours, but hey, ready in 3 weeks!

I'm picking it up on the 18th July, so before then I need to have worked out a suitable run in program for the engine etc. Then, before the sailing season starts, it's playtime!

Same engine, but different prices, Mariners normally cheaper!

Really??? Wow! You just made my day...

Seriously though, I do spend a bit of time on the water, but it's usually doing slow speed stuff with PB2 students. Be nice to have a play with me on the helm when this baby arrives!

Working.

On call for a yacht charter company, then doing handovers and hand backs. Closest I'm going to get to water is the floating pontoons.

Actually, I'm a bit ashamed of how much they charged us for certain items, as I could have done it cheaper myself (things such as anchor etc), but the issue is the union would only give a cheque to the one company. So, because of that, I added to the spec to get as close to the budget as was reasonably without being silly.

Budget was 14k (Had to be new, and 5m or less). The quote with either engine was under that.
