Hi Kim,

You've been busy again!

Perhaps a photo of each one of the new hulls/vessels would be a good idea? I know very little about any of the turbine steamers, and I'm sure others won't know what each model is either?

Regards
Eddy

Hi Eddie,

I hope that you are on the mend ...  :)

The Viper is a very impressive looking ship.

http://website.lineone.net/~tom_lee/snaefell4.htm

http://www.simplonpc.co.uk/IOM_Snaefell_Viper.html

I think she sailed from Montgomerie pier in Ardrossan to the Isle of Man.

Hmmm .... how long is the hull, Kim.

Edit: just checked the Clyde website ... 315ft.

Hi All,

Eddy, I will probably have time over the weekend to go through the site as there are a few things needing tidied up. You're right some more detail will be added.

Sandy -
Yes she is a nice big boat at 1:48 she has a hull just over 200cm and a beam of 25cm.

Surprisingly / reassuringly i have had a fair bit of interest in Viper despite her  size and have only one Viper hull left at the reduced price.
Regards,
Kim
