Hi guys,

Anyone got any thoughts on the above boat?  We have it on Saturday for a few days.  Seems OK from what I have seen online,  looks to have a reasonable amount of space inside.

I know it won't be luxury,  but will it suffice for 6 30 somethings for a few days of chill out time?

Cheers

IMT

Old enough to know what to do, young enough to enjoy it!

Hi I.M.T

I've only seen glimpses of the interior when moored in the yard but it seems like what your expecting is what you'll get...the boats about 18 years old (young compared to some hirecraft!) and looked nicely presented externally when I last saw her in june, internally it has been updated slightly but soft furnishings and finishes etc are passable but not top luxury.

I'm sure you therefore won't be disappointed and will have a comfortable home for your trip.

When we stopped over at Herbert Woods every member of staff we met were extremely friendly and helpful too so hopefully this may add to the experience!

Enjoy!

Dan

P.S. Here's the boat (June '05)!.....

Hello IMT.

We had your very boat in 2000 & enjoyed it. The layout is lovely & it was a very practical, spacious boat. At the time we hired it was a little tatty but I haven't seen inside it since & improvements may have been made.

Thanks for the info (and pic Dan)

Looks quite a big beast.... Am I right in thinking that it will go under PH?  I am due to pick the boat up tomorrow @ around 2.30,  is this a good time (tide wise) to get under PH?

So many questions,  so little time!

Cheers

IMT

We took it under Potter IMT, although it was a tight squeeze as it needs 7ft. With the low water levels this year you might just be lucky.
