Uh hum....

star? Well I guess winning 7 out of 10 races last year with one race abandoned makes it a star. But then perhaps the driver and navigator have something to do with it ;-)

This is quite a good deal seen as it has won the championship and including all the spares, like the spare race engine and gearbox that would equate to a fair amount of money. so all in all this is a good deal

Thats an amazing amount of money. Hardly an easy step into the sport is it?!?

Out of interest how much is a new hull?
I guess the engines are somewhere around the 11-12k mark?!
If i'm right with the engine prices the hull equates to around 20k!! Ouch!

Thats around the mark i'd imagined. Cheers Hunton

So 45 grand after 2 tough racing seasons seems a bit on the steep side in my honest opinion and claiming the right to freedom of speach!


I'll just ask for sensible (or at least humorous) replies only next time i post i think, some people just waste there time!

This is a very nice boat, the hull is mint and all the spares will be in new condition i reckon.

a new boat is round the 50,000 mark buying this boat is like buying a new boat.
