Default i'm leaving

to all my maxum frends,

i'm sorry to let you all know that we have sold our maxum and bought ourself a big launch boat........after the problems we had with the leaking and problems with the hull (gelcoat was not good gleued on the hull at the back) we didn't trust it at all anymore. and the prices of the fuel are around the 2.20 dollar a liter....and i dont want to pay that anymore, not because i cant afford it but there's a limit..........so the launchboat only drinks 1 1/2 liter an hour of diesel...we never cruise on a high speed so it was time to say goodbay to the boat......we made a nice deal, so there was no financial pain......

i wish you all a wunderfull summer and all the best in the future..............

many many many greatz, ed

Interesting "boat", Ed, seems like a large floating bed!

Looking forward to seeing actual pictures of her.

finally we have our launch boat.........consumption only not even half a gallon of diesel with a max speed of aproxx 15 miles an hour......it has got a camper tent al over the boat, a lot of living space and a big sunbed......and because the weather was fine last days, it was our favourite place to stay

greatz, ed
