    I have lots of experinece at sea, and would be extrremly cautious about bring T29 back by sea. Main "expense" is plenty of time to wait for nice weather, and with relatively short range its hoppity hoppity all the way around. If you have a job, it's be much cheaper to bring it back most if not all of the way by road. Or of course, leave it there and go into the med, which is a lovely place to enjoy this sort of boat, but less accessible...

    Would you not motor it back?

    I think you might be thinking "raggily" chas? A 29 footer sailboat from portugal okay, but a powerboat will pitch about and have limited range. Both need plenty of time, but small powerboat not well suited imho

    Quite agree. Used to get knackered taking mine from Port Solent to Ryde!

    Good engines, great acceleration, had the same in my T30 that I sold before the summer. Only complaint is that the compressers can be a bit noisy at harbour speeds (8 - 10 knots).

    Presume you're still going to 'try an offer'?
