went to the London Boat Show today......good turn out from MC.....they had a diesel powered prostar......the engine is from VW and i think it was about 275hp...not as much as even the RTP but with much more torque.......they said it would add £10,000 to the price of the boat :eek:

For the teak surfers and regular surfers doesn't diesel have an advantage?

While there are long term effects, can't you breathe diesel exhaust? I know I did sitting in traffic in Antwerpen so often!
I'm sure the low end pull will be really strong with that engine.

Cool Pictures Sizzer! The girls are very cute!

I don't know about the health effects, but Diesel fumes just make me sick to the stomach !
What were you doing in Antwerpen Leroy ?

I was there 2 years as ex-pat working for Thomson when we acquired the DSL modem business of Alcatel. Great place to live.
