    I think Jack's a pretty cool writer too.
    Put the Aquastar on a truck BJB and it will be there ready for a cruise the weekend after next. 5k all in. You know it makes sense!

    Ooer Mark, you've asked about my specialist subject there mate. Scatter cushions are a critically important part of the boat. It just wouldn't be the same without them. They make the sofas more comfortable of course just like in a house, but I agree their practical use ends there. However, they allow you to change the look every couple of days. The day after the dinner table/sofa was photographed with the cerise/pink, it was changed to aquamarine blue and turquoise stuff, giving a totally new look. Plain sofas with no cushions look too dull, esp on the flybr of this boat which has acres of sunbrella cloth. The cushions add colour, and you can change the colour every couple of days. They also make the beds look nicer. I have 60 cushion fillings on the boat in constant use and 90 cushion covers (to allow the look to be changed). It's essential stuff Mark!

    John,

    Do you change your handbag every time you change the cushions.

    You must be co-ordinated at all times.

    PS Saw the boat at LIBS, it looked cracking.

    by the way,
    what are the black dots above the bow on your new avatar ?
    can't be the anker ball.

    Naah, not with the luxury of a drying machine onboard...!
    More likely to be some of the rocks in Lavezzi, as per previous pics.
