    Yes Port Adriano. I heard it's come on really well (I wasn't there for the survey, I'm in SofF currently). But from what I hear it's very expensive.

    Beautiful boat. I just saw an ad for a 1997 Sunseeker with 315 hrs on the engines, hope you get to use your boat a little bit more than that.

    Hello scej,

    how would you describe the difference between IPS and shafts in similar boats and why do you prefer shafts? I have driven IPS boats and shaft boats but that was always in different boats (brands) and therefore different handling characteristics "built in".
    You can always use another 50hp...

    Nice boat, will have to get No.1 son to buy one as SWMBO says we are keeping the Abs 41 cos she likes it. It took EBY all of two weeks to sell their 41 so your 45 shouldn't hang about at the right price.

    Hi scej,

    I'm interested in hearing your opinion about IPS vs shafts in the same hull. You've driven Pred 64s with both as I understand. What made you prefer shafts?

    I've driven shaft and IPS boats but never in the same hull, so it is not so easy so compare.

    Took her out a couple of days ago and took a bit of video (with a normal camera so pretty shaky), she's called 'Dark Star' same as my old ABS...
