Thanks for the warm welcome all.
@Seevee, its a great place and yes, there are a lot of pilot/boaters here. Stanley is a great area, but now extremely expensive. No more flying at Kai Tak anymore, its now the cruise ship terminal, although it has a nice typhoon shelter behind it.
@Ted, the RR Merlin would have been a good investment, but only if you had kept it for 40 years or so!!
@healhustler, thats a real shame, but yes we do have an amazing maritime community here, and a very social club.

That price was for the P51 and the spare engine.

Even better, no apologies needed, that plane would have taken a lot

TFer Hickers has a Clipper 45. Glad to hear the OP has derated engines, they don`t need 450hp times 2. I think the Clipper sells/did sell in the US as a Mariner Yacht, but it had design variations with the versions of the Clipper 40 sold here, which imo is a great boat.We have one coming onto the marina soon, unfortunately it`s not mine.

Welcome to the TF, harvardrvr. This Forum has a good cosmopolitan vibe, which you have now elevated. Hope to see some photos of your boat / community one day.
