    Amazing looking boat. I’m glad you found a ‘better’ boat, so there are no what ifs or regrets. Must rank as one of the most extraordinary buying experience of all time

    Fantastic news DW, glad it all worked out in the end, that is indeed a tidy looking boat and nice that a lot of niggly refurb / smarten up jobs have been done already . Looking forward to seeing you around the solent enjoying her .

    Well done DW, a lovely boat (one of FL's finest).

    I guess you won't be needing Paul Meeson for a re-fit (which is good for me as he looks after my boat in Altea)!

    Despite liking my FL's looking 'factory' even I would be tempted to get rid of the 90's Maserati style steering wheel.

    If you need a new boat name for the back, let me know.

    A very practical mod indeed, which I've seen on a few other boats with the same passerelle position.
    Btw, that must have been done recently, since they are missing in the first pic.

    Anyhow, congratulations for the happy ending. Looking fwd to your first cruise report with her!

    Apropos of stuff worth getting rid of, DW, I see that you've got a bit of Raymarine kit which I also have on my boat, the Ray 430 Loudhailer.

    I would be intested to hear if you (or anyone else who has the same thingie) think it's worth keeping, because I've yet to turn it on after the initial boat check, and I'm thinking to chunk it overboard and make better use of the dashboard space...

    Dear oh dear oh dear !

    As I am sure you learned when doing you ICC the loudhailer is vital.

    It makes you captain of the ship and makes sure all know your obvious authority. You crew will also respond instantly to your commands.

    Follow this advise at your peril !

    Itís true use? The kids like playing with it !

    Lovely.

    Looks great - maybe even better than the last one. Everything happens for a reason. Enjoy your summer.
