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.
