I’m just keeping my options open. If it’s a really nice powerboat with a fridge big enough to keep a pallet of beer cold then I won’t care if she doesn't leave me. I’ll be drunk!
Jason,

The only problem with a big power boat that carries that much beer is being able to afford the extra women that go with owning the boat as well as keeping the wife and her not finding out.

Now if you do buy a power boat, just make shore that your iTunes account and phones are not linked with your wife's. Otherwise it could  help her lawyer in the divorce when she fines out.

Well Jason 

I know a well known property developer (not Worro)  in Qld who owns a 97 foot power boat who had his phone linked to his wife's for  business reasons. Well when he started to have the affair he forgot that the phone was linked and his wife was getting all the messages from both of then.

She kept quiet and didn't say a thing till she was ready to leave him and within days her lawyer took him to the cleaners

The problem with big boats is we can all afford to own them, it's the hangers on and the extra women that cost.

So that’s a 97 footer, going cheap and probably has at least one electric toilet? Sold!

Easy to keep the thread going, fins Jas a new boat.

Jas

Pretty much perfect weekender.

Should not have sold the one I had.
I was a fan of that boat. Even an Aquarius 35 would fit the bill.

Or… we pop two new boats out of the moulds?

Unless there’s an Anarchist in WA who has some background on the Randell 31?

Speaking as someone who's spent very little on motorboats, the fairways seem to have an easily driven hull and good aesthetics.

I also admired "Hermione" when I was growing up (something I'm still trying to do decades later), and she was in Hobart... she was once a pure motorboat, but the motorsailor conversion suits her.

Shit like this is hard to see. Was last listed around a year ago in WA for less than 17,000, now for sale in Vic in a worse state for $2k more. I doubt it even still floats. 

And to top it off they reckon its a "weekend cruiser"...
I like it, but not at 19k in that condition, interested to see the canting keel, is it me or that keel looks a bit small for the size and what could be when powered up she might get up and go?

I don't know how familiar you are with the mini650 class, but they really do get up and go. 







I guess that the keel drops down much further, and is canted with blocks and lines, as is standard for the prototype class.

You can see the keel is not connected, its currently up through the centre of the boat, which is likely a later modification to allow it to be trailerable without being high up, non of the current protos have that feature, they take the keel off entirely if they want to trailer "low rider" style.

Compared to modern proto's or even series boats this thing would be absolutely no match anyway, but its still a shame to see it rotting away...
