YES

Iam wasting peoples time, which would also mean iam wasting my time too.

I want a AHT, but unless i win the lottory its not going to happen soon. Unless a nice one comes up at aprice i can afford, But i would also like a nice tidy modern ship.

but thats not happening at the moment is it.

if i had space an time i would try an build something, i dont get board easy i used to make airfix models but now i work an dont have a shed or spare room that road is blocked.

i dont want to waste peoples time, at least iam trying not to.

Chris,

I found your ship...

But first, it is my opinion, that as many ships as you have bought and sold, you will not be
happy with anything you try to buy Ready to Run.  So a few sacrifices have to be made.

1, You'll have to spend more money than you would like.
2, You are going to have to make space to build the boat you want at home.
3, You are going to have to build this yourself.

UT - 720 class AHST

The same class as the Maersk Handler.

Cost for all these parts,... approximatetly 940,00

...

No excuses,... building it yourself is the only way to get exactly what "you" want.

 :) :) :)

Chrisuk; I have to agree with Umi, the only way to come close to being satisfied with a boat is to build it yourself, unless you have unlimited funds, but then where is the pleasure. Al

now here's one for you chris........a small and easy to build AHT/OSV... you could actually build this on a kitchen table with a minimum amout of tools and it should be cheap too.
Now, of you don't want this to gain some building experience, I can't see you wanting anything.

Just an FYI, Andre has been in the hospital for the past few weeks, and is just now getting back to work.  He is only working about 3 1/2 days a week and won't have anything back in full stock until about May.
I received an email from him last week and told me my UT-720 hull and parts will be shipped out this week.

I took an I.Q. test once..........The results came back negative.
