My SWMBO is a Ratners girl. I just haven't had the balls to tell her yet thoughBlimey mike don't let swmbo read your diamond comment. Yes an Ibiza night in Tom's about-to-be 25m is not cheap but it's very far from the amount you need to be offered a chair at your local Graff* shop
Bloody hell, already fed up with the Sq78? Are you singlehandedly trying to drag the British economy back into growth? I do hope it's BritishI maybe am working hard on my next boat project though, still secret, but don't think I am doing nowt in the messing-about-in-boats department Mike!
Off the cuff, Persistance will have a nice hull speed of 10 knots and need 275 continuous hp to achieve that, so a nice B rated 350hp diesel will do the job very well on something like 60 litres an hour. That's all very guessworkishoffthecuff
another engineering technical term?
Fifty years ago, my foreman mech fitter said, "near enough isn't good enough" but by twenty past four in the afternoon, he said, near enough is good enough for me, get finished up, we're going home in ten mins

Lots of comments on this little ship, some pushing you to buy and lots against. We all post threads on here sometimes with our minds already made up, but its just interesting to poke the forum for some responses. I look at Persistance with a real yearning to one day be in a position to purchase and make good something like this. I go into everything in life thinking how hard can it be, and assume I can do it until someone tells me otherwise, (the unicycle in my garage proves that...). I know looking at Persistance that if I got hold of it I would make that into a beauty... trouble is even with a budget of say £500k to do the work, the 74ft solent mooring would still hurt a bit...
