Hi Scott,

Thanks for the comment, i know what you mean regarding the picture....i nearly didn't get her tho almost caught out as i didn't know she was coming alongside!.

Just a shame the day weather wise was so awful.

Nice shot Richard!

Looking at the photo makes it looks she is about to pop out of the computer screen! :lol:

Yes amazing to think that's an 84 price for a newbuild, at that time it was seen as mind boggling!

Still with the onslaught of mega builds the Artemis is without doubt an attractive lady...
