I'm back from testing the Viko 21. I did like it, but its a lake boat not a sea boat :crying:
The Southampton boat show starts on the 13 of this month. I'll try and get a deal on a Viko s35 :winedrinker:

Its few metres bigger and should handle better at sea [thumbsup.png]



The base price is 50k + vat.
Add on another 20k for extras like solar panels, hybre engine, water maker and lifeboat.
I'm looking at round 100k :rolleyes:

At Least I've fought off the urge to buy a gunboat :proud:
(5 million dollars :peekaboo: )

None. I'm back to 95% mobility after years of hard work. My concentration levels and irritability still need a little effort :blush:

Unlike Amber, I didn't let disability defined me :proud:

And let's face it, after years of s&m, picking up injuries...... this was nothing new for me. :thumbsup:

errr well no... :rolleyes:

And I'm going to write an honest reply for a change.

In construction, people work with all kinds of injuries. Picking them up is normal. From painful teeth to ripped muscles and broken bones they still go to work.

And its why the phase "construction worker" sends a&e into panic. The staff have a long hard look at them. Workers have left hospitals with untreated injuries many times to return to work. Seeing any doctor is viewed as a waste of time.

I'd love to say its money that drives them back to work, unfortunately it's not true. They return to work due to lack of trust in the advice they are given.

I have no faith in medical advice or opinion.

Pain is normal and you learn to live with it. My mobility return due to hard work in the swimming pool and sea. I stopped taking pills and medication after the first 6 months. The worst that can happen to you is death. And death rates for men in there 40 & 50's are terrible, so why worry?

So you can let medical staff frighted you and family into becoming a victim, and most do.... or just say frk it and get on with life. Stick two fingers up, get a dnr and when they ring you for another test or check up say no.

Unless they're scaping you off the street, you don't see a doctor.

Stubness was the reason for my recovery, not medical advice.

I'm getting back on subject [eng1.gif]

I've found it really odd no one seems to scrap boats :think:
There seems to be an endless supply of "coffin" boats older than me mum for sale. :blink:
Also why replace a 10 year old boat with a new one [shrug65465.gif]

Here is the conversation going on right now on me text

"Hi babe, have you thought about a canal boat?"

I can't think of a canal within 40 miles of Hove [shrug65465.gif]
Maybe there one close by that I've not see or heard of :think:

This is kind of thing I'm being asked to buy or "loaned" them the money for :rolleyes: :



http://www.aintreeboats.co.uk/beetle-fabfour-range/

The list price is 34k new with vat, add on 10k for extras

I'm going to point out why I dont like them.

1000 notes a year for a canal licence [9n5.gif]
No green engines and this means a £100 per week diesel bill [9n5.gif]
Another morring to buy [9n5.gif]
Opening locks [9n5.gif]
And this will have to be towed across and back the channel if I want to use the EU's canal network [9n5.gif]

I know there 2000 miles of canals in the UK and you hire them out..... but wasting 50k on a floating accommodation block for "friends and family" that requires a 2 hour drive to reach is nonsense :wall:

Wait, there another text:

" Well it's ok for you to spend money on new yacht but nothing on family !! "

My sister seems to forget I've just loaned HER daughter a flat deposit in Manchester :rolleyes:
