I have 3381, seventh wave, also built by Jon Turner.  It is a fabulous boat, built by a master builder.  

If 3385 is in good condition it is a real steal!

In remember blackadder when baldrick says that the Spanish infantas eyes were as blue as the blue stone of galvestone. Only to find baldric had seen neither

It's the 1000 price tag that's a bit worrying

Someone bought it. It went for £855 which is about right I think for a decent Turner NSM4.

Does anybody know any other boats at that price range which are reasonable

Ask him to have a word with Godfrey Clark about 3484. I know the price tag is a bit higher than the stated £1000, but it is a cracking boat and a Canterbury Tales at that!

I am always surprised how few NSM2's there are on the for sale board. There must be dozens out there somewherelooking for a good home!
