Capt Kermie... first, I hope you're clear that I meant no disrespect to you or any other M26 owners - whatever floats your boat (whichever boat) and all that. I agree they have a place in the entry market esp when buying new. The "bring it home" convenience is a huge factor, esp in moorage-tight markets like ours.

Secondly, thanks (I think? ) for the boat compliment - though on the car scale I'm not sure I'd put our boat in the Lincoln category... she's a decent mid-range-cost cruiser with a layout that's easy to live with and she's not too hard on the eyes either. More Impala with options than Lincoln, though.

If you see us out there, pop over and I'll buy you a beer.. anytime!
