Glad there were no surprises and now you've got a new boat with a new engine. Nice!..
Getting there.. It's been a year already and she's cost me a small fortune having a shipwright show me what to do and the right tools for the job (Forstener bits aren't something I needed on the Hartley!). Finding crew can be a challenge, but we've had some great times aboard her already.
I do miss the other boat sometimes, but then I think of the excitement of trailering and rigging up on stinkpot-laden boatramps and then I don't miss her any more.
How to make a small fortune ? Start with a large one and buy a timber boat.
Yesh, I know, old joke and corny with it.
We still on for Saturday Cameron ? Weather forecast is a bit dodgey but fingers crossed. Raven is looking a tadge naked at the moment. Dodger and bimini taken off for remaking and won't be back till next week.
