No not, submarines. After years of persuasion, the missus has finally agreed to let me buy a boat. Awesome. I've always been particularly into old speed boats and launches, the sort of shit you see at Henley or tearing about Venice. I love the look of them and they are infinitely nicer than the current crop of plastic shite that you can pick up on ebay. Don't get me wrong, sailing under the power of wind is also cool, but I'm a bit of a hooligan and I love tear arsing around at speed. I'm thinking hot Summer day, rag the boat about a bit, then leisurely motor around with a picnic and a few bottles of bubbly. With the exception of a rubber dinghy I owned as a kid, it's going to be my first boat so I don't want to break the bank and a vintage Riva is probably a bit out of my price range. I'm thinking a 1950's or 60's British ski boat might be perfect for me. Any other boaters here?
