The first boat is in Greece racing quite successfully with a regular Opti 225 standard shaft on it (20"), so this is my current boat that we set the records with. We used to win the rough Class III races by miles in the rough, the only thing that came close was Adam Youngers old boat, another great rough water boat!

By the way I am sort of looking for a Mark one Sunseeker Tomahawk, so if anyone knows of something - especially if it needs a bit of work? I could do a PX?

OK maybe I should have said it clearer - I'm not splitting them unless someone wants the boat without power, in which case everyone who asked (I think you're number three or four) can make me offers!

Want to tempt me with a really good offer?

Sold!

The boat left for Greece yesterday - I guess he got a bargain with the Euro being so strong!

Move lift outside (the lorry wouldn't fit inside) and lift boat with forklift attached at the hitch for stability and stage 3.

Reverse lorry until wheels are inside the lorry and lower lift.

Push boat into lorry with fork lift until jockey wheel is inside as well and push to front of trailer.

Greek bloke who doesn't speak English is clearly impressed by English (Kittens) ingenuity!

Once again Kitten has proved that when you have a real headscratcher he's your man!

Right has anyone got a Sunseeker Tomahawk Mark one '89 or older? I want to go Classic endurance racing! (I've seen the advertised ones!)

Cookee, not a tomahawk I know but looks to be a bit of a steal if you are thinking of petrols. Even got it's own trailer!

I don't think so - I'll ask him next week when I talk to him!

We had a couple of days of thinking of various ways of loading the boat - one or two were sure to end in a spectacular cock up! (mostly my ideas!)
