Anyone here into them or got one? I used to have one of these:

Would very much like to get another one sometime. Something like this would be nice:

Cue slagging off powerboats by the yotties on here

Edit: How do I position the pics in the post?

Formula. Good boats. Inboard or outboard?

You'll probably recognise the top photo as being taken at Brighton marina.

For budding would be playboys, the London Boatshow is well worth a trip.
I could arrange some free & secure parking for F-cars (max. 6) by the dockside.
Show info at www.londonboatshow.com

Perfect livener for those winter blues. :smile:

Ohhh yes. Reminds me of the time when I was buying my apartment in Malta. It’s part of a marina complex. So naïve me asks about security. “Yes sir there’ll always be a guard on duty”. “And CCTV?” I ask. “Err… no sir, it not usual to put CCTV in marinas”. “Why’s that then?” I ask causally. Cue much awkward clearing of throats and staring at shoes before I was given the explanation! :D

Dave - I will try and fit in with your arrangements - so just let me know when you may be going and we will see what we can do.

Looks like Steve is being his usual anti-social self anyway :D:p

Sat works good for me too, as it means I don't have to lose revenue for a weekday.

Dave, will book my flight down now, and maybe we could go out for a few drinks afterwards eh guys?
