    Looking good JFM, and looking forward to dropping by at LIBS.

    Good luck for the launch at Ipswich.

    Might need to break through the ice, -9C tonight at our marina. Horrible!!

    No, I reckon its when it firsts starts to cost you more than you had expected (leg the second date) - my guess is that Match is well and truly feminine by now!

    Jeeez! That's some journey on a mother of a truck! Looks massive on there, wish I knew before cos I would have made the trip to see it for myself on the road. Do they move all their boats like this, have they ever thought of moving the yard to a coast location?

    Any idea when your slot is for Excel? Will you be aboard as she comes in?

    Now they have one that just says "Princess"

    wow, 50 tonnes light.... so after a year of use and squirreling, and full tanks... that would be 60 tonnes...impressive. Are you sure you needed stabilizers ?
