And having spent most of the day yesterday stripping the sails off of our boat to prepare for Earl, power is looking better and better!

Thanks for the link. Very interesting! Our size of boat does not come close to those guys but the rationale is similar. Plus of course we also wish to explore EU waterways. Impossible really on a deep draft yacht or indeed on a power boat of such a size.
