I love the way he has room in his living room for his wood 505s, he's cooking one infront of the fire!

Reckon they have more wooden 505s on one pontoon than we have in the whole country...

Very jealous. Would just love one.

Ed,

You are not alone I reckon. Definitely Five-Ooooooh!

Just wonder what my father would have made of it. Having been an early devotee of fibreglass, I think he'd be somewhat bemused!

For me though (sorry Dad), she's perfection personified.
