We don't dream in Australia, we do. Good on you Brian. People with your level of forethought make things happen in this world!

I didnt say any thing about being economical on my diesels,
I have sails for economical sailing.

3 ton of diesels in any thing your in, is not economical, and thats with out gearboxes, drive train, Props, added, All up, Approx 5 ton, Add a jib crane, nearly 6 ton, all up, Plus a ton and a half of car, 7.5 ton,
It would probably sink it, As you dont have the displacement for it,

Its a custom build for me, and me only, I dont care what any one says about it,
It will do what I say it will,
Bigger diesels it will be even faster,
Did I mention that the Props will be home made, 316 Stainless or 80 Bissalloy.

This boat isnt a toy,

Some one puts 300-000 grand in my hand, it will be on the water and sailing into the wild blue yonder, within 6 months,

Did I mention also that it is unsinkable, as humanly possible, And dont even think of mentioning the Titanic,
They cheated and it deserved to sink, Money grubbers that got their fingers burnt.

Plus this is off topic.

Thanks Mate, I have done a lot of things in my time, which were impossibilitys,

Building my boat and then going back to check on the formula's and then finding out what I actually was capable off, what my Qualifications were, Even surprised me, I just thought I was good with my hands, Shame I didnt know about it 20 years ago,

If you think outside the square, any thing is possible,

Cant, Cannot, Impossible, These are words for the unenlightened Masses, They mean nothing to me,

Cheers,
Brian,

Re: market

Hey, I was looking at a 44 ft 2006-7 model lagoon which I am going to equip with a mk25df fill system, sat tv, internet etc.. to run dive and regular week long charters from Tampa to the Keys and the Bahamas, at 335,000 do you think this is a good or fair asking price?

I think many people would be able to manage that challenge!

Mostly it was passengers that drowned. With a strong bias towards 3rd class passenger drownings. I believe the board of White Star were well insured and came out financially intact.
