I will get all that info for ya. but it might be a couple of days. The 150 is sorta for sale. As in if it sells cool but if not the owner can easily keep it. ME I want it sold for the room HA HA HA HA.

I have specifically resisted getting my ticket and a aircraft. Hell if I did that I might as well get a BOAT God Forbid and then it would be right down the drain from there...

I hear you, when I was a Boat Owner, until 1 year ago, I've always had a hard time getting the dealer fixed the hole .






The one my money kept flushing through ;-)

Nothing compared to boat ownership! I could of bought a mint NAS 110 with the upkeep cost and fuel from the past 7 yrs of owning my money pit. But I do love my boat.

What is it? the two happiest days in boat ownership? The day you buy it and the day you sell it?

As for a Land Rover being the automotive version of a boat? Kinda but not as bad as Ferraris...

I never had an issue with the Prancing Horses, even with the POS 308GTSi.
I've been through many models when I was young an stupid, now I am just old. *LOL*
I've had more problems with the BAT specially the Countach, my first Evil was very problematic clutch wise, but the subsequent models were awesome.

I guess ( tooting my own horn ) is all in the driving.

See this is the difference between American enthusiasts and British ones. British ones have had other cars mostly ford escorts, British LR enthusiasts cannot afford Ferris and other supercars! I have had land rovers since I was 14. i have owned personally more than 50. I have had all the series vehicles, 101's and stage ones. I had a modern TD5 Dcab when they first came out. but i could have never afforded any other car other than the landies.

Julian you have a skewed view of the LR enthusiast scene if you base it on the demographic of this board. NAS D90's and 110's have always been high-dollar toys here in the States and this list draws a disproportionate number of well heeled members. The majority of US LR enthusiasts are probably driving 15 year old Disco 1s. They are cheap and plentiful and there are always more of them at the LR events than anything else. Anyway, I don't obsess about what others have and what I can or cannot afford. I'm more interested in what someone brings to the scene. If I had the dosh to blow on a supercar I think I would rather find something else to do with it...not my cup of tea. Certainly there are other cars that cost less than LR's that you could own. Even in the UK they are not the cheapest thing out there to run. And new ones are rather dear from what I've seen.

Back in the day, the less well off rover people drove series trucks and the well heeled drove discos and range rovers and defenders. As the market prices of discos and range rovers fell, a lot of the series people bought one and new people came in because it became affordable. Now you have pretty much the whole spectrum of socio-economic backgrounds, but it does skew a bit above average and most NAS defender people have a couple nickels to rub together.

edit: you see less and less series trucks at events and many of the ones you do see are nicely restored.

No my brother you are wrong. You have no idea of the way money flows out on boats especially offshore boats like mine. One offshore forum was suggesting 20-25k annually in operating costs for boat 31 Bertram Sportfish with twin diesels- not a big boat by anyones standards and more economical than most. Thats just operating and maint forget the upgrades.

And it's a shame -- I'd love to find an 88 in good, not great, shape, but they're really just not around.

Doug, you own a 31 Bertram? - quite possibly the Defenders match on the water by reputation

I do own a 1977 31 Betram flybridge cruiser. Dark blue hull with burgundy boot,black bottom,white cabin.
Twin 300hp TA diesels and 4kw diesel genset, 16k btu Cruisair a/c/heat, 40 mile open array radar, fighting chair,outriggers, ultra leather interior, etc. 400 NM range, 30 knot boat.
Have done many tournaments along the Md and Nj coasts. Have been as far North as Block Island, RI. and as far South as Moorhead City, Nc.
Widely regarded as the best power boat ever built- so yes I'd say they compliment each other nicely. Was once caught 60 miles off Nj in 14+ foot seas- wouldn't have wanted to do that in a different boat.

Name of the boat is Crows Nest

thanks, though being on the other side of the country likely makes it too difficult.
