Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...
I should add to Jimgo - we found it really fun and rewarding to do the work ourselves. It was fun to learn to do everything as we went. It's not for everyone, but it can be surprising to see what you can get done. I look forward to hearing how it goes as it unfolds for you.
I may have missed it in the thread: What's up with Ferry Point? Have you considered there?
