John Bellamy Comments: I was disappointed with the web site as it is very aimed at women - and I thought it did not show this vessell off at its best - but the facebook page is much better with tons of pictures and details and goes a long way to show this boat off in a better light. I have suggested a re vamp of the web site as this is usually the first place people will find such a holiday / social venue as it does look lovely and the thought of a musical weekend afloat with friends is a great idea... la la la la la la la



Maybe a weekend away with friends for a Karaoki weekend... mmmm now there's a thought for Steve West and myself - a weekend singing against / at each other - ha ha - a duel to the end - a 'Sing Off to the Death... ' - ha ha .. Him singing Frank Sinatra and me Barbra Streisand (well did you think I was going to say LuLu ??? )


What a lovely idea, cabins and all.


This is David - your host - cute huh ?
