Just bought my first Yacht
« on: August 10, 2013, 12:16:20 PM »

Hi all just bought my first yacht after reading up on a few reviews <*< ,the boat i finally went for is a Phantom,i had searched Ebay and the cheapest was 95 plus 10.95 postage and packing the dearest was 115 plus 10 postage and packaging,i had a look on u tube and looked at the Monsoon and the Phantom there wasnt a lot of difference between them other than the reviews of the Monsoon where a bit negative on the built quality of some of the components {:-{ so i decided on the yellow and black colour scheme of the Phantom rather than the white or red and black of the Monsoons,i saw a link to the Hobbyking website and went to have a look the Phantom was listed at about 92 pounds and the Monsoon in the mid fifties so then the price was swaying me towards the Monsoons even bearing the reviews in mind,i wanted something i could get on the water in as little time as possible as having just joined a club and building a scale tugboat which will be some time before it is finished i felt like a fish out of water when i went to the pond where they sail just watching etc and not really knowing anyone there so as to speak anyhow i had left the webpage open for about 5 mins when this pop up came up with a (one time offer) so they say reducing the boat to 62 and a few pence i know its a gimick but why dont they list the correct price at the start {:-{ Well this clinched the deal and am just awaiting delivery now for an all in price of 75 O0 O0  I believe they come without instructions but i hope i can solve any problems by posting on this forum and pick up tips on improving it.
Just waiting for the postie now. :-))
