I got a boat !!!!

Well..............after some protracted negotiations we have concluded the sale of 'Nimiane'.

Used 1999 FINN 8 Boat For Sale - boatpoint.com.au

I didn't derive much pleasure from the actual negotiations.
However finally buying her and realising the great pleasure in knowing she is mine at price we both managed to shake on was very satisfying.
Thanks to those who related their buying experiences.
Brett

Very exciting, great fun when you step on board your own new (to you) boat.

That boat should bob around like a duck in some wickedly insane wave conditions!

I remember the boat and its smaller brother/sister coming to the market years ago. The concept is as interesting now as then. I`m sure you will enjoy it, a special design.

Congrats!!! Interesting looking boat design.

But... Am I a little screwy - don't bother to answer that!

Or, are there pictures of at least two different actual boats in the sale ad link??

Q1. Not answered.
Q2. Art, think Studebaker. It may resemble 2 boats joined together but it`s not. Reminds me of UK lifeboats seen stationed along the coast. Buoyancy looks amazing.

Art,
True, she is a bit difficult to rationalise on a trailer on land.
Here is some "Art for Arts sake."........
we can appreciate the double ender concept clearer pictured on water.
