another thing, not that im a marine engineer but....
if kapa is getting refitted to "luxury" then id love that gig as it looks like its getting milked.
i mean, if it were me, and my dime, it would be out the water and gutted before i installed things like a "hot tub?".
I mean really, there looks like a lot more gutting needs to be done before it looks ready to get a faclift to luxury conditions.

:oops: :oops:

It's the fact that there are multi-coloured, number-less, City Class ex-Lindau hulls everywhere in the harbour now, & I'm trying to find out who is who :?: :?: Including the Paderhorn on the synchrolift, I now count four hulls :?:

Navy festival is going to be head scratchingly funny :D

Buying a ship is often the cheapest part. It's running the thing the breaks the bank.
Now if you want a real yacht check out Larry Ellison's "Rising Sun". Was in Cape Town middle of last year at the waterfront for the world cup. You need a BIG piggy bank to keep that one going!

The saying goes ... "if you have to ask how much it costs .. then you can't afford it ..." We saw the Rising Sun last year & it indeed is one seriously impresive oar-less canoe :D

I wonder how much change one gets after a "fill her up".

Once had to seriously burst the bubble on a Moorreesburg farmer's ideas when we were giving him a joyride in one of the Krogerwert boats. "How many miles to the gallon?" he asked. Quite shocked when he got the reply "about 5 and a half gallons to the mile". (For the imperially challenged that's about 25 litres.)

Having some fun, are you sure it is UK gallon (4,546 liters) and not US gallon (3,785 liters). :lol:

Seeing as us seffricans never used the fluid measures the rebel colonialists across the pond do I'm pretty sure of my gallons!
