    High use boat that needs a big hole fixed plus a new rudder, new rig, all new electronics and probably most of a new interior. Plus whatever needs doing to the engine.
    Half of the fleet being replaced for the start of next season anyway, and 4017 was one of the 1st batch delivered....

    If it's not a write off, I'll eat my hat.
    You never know, I might be right!

    I want a refund. Before we went sailing in the Solent I bought a book called, if I recall correctly, ĎSolent Hazardsí.

    Itís on the boatís bookshelf so I canít be sure but I donít think it mentions íSunsailí.

    Out of interest are they buying more of the same? I thought I heard that these were a bit frisky, and ideally needed an experienced first mate in addition to the helm on corporate charters?

    I don't have you down as a Tilley hat man. Can we have a picture of the relevant headgear?

    Requirement for a mate was to do with MCA manning rules... The old 37s were legal with 1 skipper. The 40s are not.

    Working as skipper on the 40s was a LOT easier in my experience.

    Maybe I should have acted earlier; I plead rabbit in headlight syndrome - a little Snapdragon pottering along at 3 1/2 knots against a 60(?) footer doing 13 1/2. I couldn't believe they'd be so arrogant/ignorant/unaware. That in itself was a useful lesson - never trust anyone to be paying attention.

    Though, thinking back, after the first one ducked behind me, had I tacked as the second one bore away as they should have done, I'd have been putting myself straight back in the firing line, this time as give way vessel (both on port, me to windward), and not fast enough to get out of the way. On balance, I think I got it about right, though a boat length sooner wouldn't have hurt.

    Incidentally, there was a bit more excitement in Southampton water yesterday afternoon, with ambulances on Weston Parade and a harbour escort boat and a RIB just offshore. Information received, of uncertain reliability, suggests it was for a man in the water. It seems he was picked up, but couldn't be landed (half tide, falling), so everybody rushed off to the port.

    Never believe anything until it has been officially denied.

    Yes far too reasonable.

    Jetskis good point, yes all went downhill really when they stopped allowing private yachts to armed with small deck cannon

    Flaming, do you know if that price is for the first 15 or for the complete order of 25 boats? It would be interesting to see the economies of scale i.e £250,000 per boat or £150,000.
