I know there's a long-running thread in the Kafeneon about the TV programme Corfu A Tale of Two Islands, but I haven't seen many Paxos people post on it, so I don't know how many of us are watching it.   Anyway, for those that may have missed it, one of the people featured in this week's episode took a trip over to Paxos and ended up in the Roxy Bar.  It's only brief, but I dare say Malcy will replay it a few times Wink  You can download past episodes here:-

Oh, I forgot!  The person concerned was travelling in what was described as the fastest boat in Corfu, so doubly interesting for Malcy Big smile

I wasn't lost - I was just taking an interesting detour!

Elaine - That is one smooth mover, rather like myselfCool
I could live with it, cruising and posing through Gaios then over to Anti Paxos for lunch.
But it's not got the same appeal as a Brava 16 looked after by Spiros and the boys and Mrs Malcy tells me off if I go too fast for too long!!

Yes, there was definitely a touch of the James Bonds there Cool  Dunno about telling you off though, at that speed I'd be cowering and blubbering in the bottom of the boat DeadCryEmbarrassed

Very smooth and clearly still got his priorities right - beautiful fast boat, leaves the partner at home whilst he slums it in Corfu and 'may' think of settling down and buying something slower and more befitting family life >>> (or maybe later Wink)
 
This was the second brief glimpse of Paxos in this series - as all of us addicted to our special place will know!
 
Dont think Spiros (and certainly not Mrs M - or Mrs B !) would enjoy filling up the fuel tank; most probably burns around 250 litres an hour at speed Cry

Hi Jeff - I don't think you are far wrong there.  I had a conversation about the fuel burn of Rory's boat during the summer and remember thinking that it used more fuel per hour than a twin engined Cessna that I used to fly in;  that burned 20 gallons per hour (90 litres) per engine - and that was at 200 knots.
