That boat looks familiar, did it ever spend any time around the Moray Firth?

& for Rhino2.3t - Water is very good but always remember the windsurfers mantra "I must never sheet out , I must never sheet out"

haha that's a very good point.. adding water and petrol to a situation comes down to a simple rule

(i'm waiting for a SAAB that is this exciting - maybe they're just tooo safe :wink: )

Our old sailboat was named Halycon too. Now we've got a Sabre 34 foot.

The guys at the marina some times hail me as "what the hals he on". Good boat, Sabre. She's a Sea Sprite, 34.

Nice boat there, Kev.....

I've been demoted to a Scorpion dinghy for the summer, the family boat's been sold

The littl'un does ok though, can usually give windsurfers a run for their money
