Thanks for the feedback. Sorry for not being on here for months.
For 2011 I gave up on buying my own boat having realized that the season where I live is 5 months. All that maintenance, scrubbing, getting in and out of the water and the boat isn`t even in water for more than 40% of a calendar year.
I struggle a bit as without my own boat I can`t get the experience I need for more advanced certificates but where I live is not a good place to have a boat...
Thanks again, cheers,
