We'll see.
After yesterday's official confirmation that the Clintons are above the law, along with Repub leaders still "hoping" that Trump will improve his behavior, you should only have to wait another few months for your bargain powercat.

Monkey man,

The powercat gets better fuel mileage so it doesn't require such large tanks, plus it goes much faster. I'm not looking to cross oceans, circumnavigating is highly over rated IMHO. I know quite few who set out to do it or have done it. Most don't really see much unless they spend 10-15 years doing it.

Ken

I find the cost of a cat power boat quite expensive....

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Indeed, Weavis, very very expensive but perhaps cheaper than a Nord. But I cannot complain. Both are over my class in society. Whatever Kenno-mundo desires.

A new Fountaine Pajot Cumberland 47 costs much less than half the price of a new Oyster 54.

But realistically, looking ahead to next season, we are pricing a new Yankee and staysail for our Oyster along with lithium batteries and all the gear associated. So..... We'll probably stick with what we have unless the right opportunity comes our way.

You've obviously never seen a trawler without large stabilizers in an anchorage.

Have you seen the Lagoon 630 MY?

They like to "sleep around", but don't quite grasp what that expression really means.

Indeed, Weavis! I've been following that crazy boaty for a few daize now. Going left going right. Well, he's a bot over 1/2 there. Think he has good wind.
