new boat

Thanks for the welcome just as soon as I figure out all the features of the site I'll post pics of my boat,and yes I know it's allot of work to maintain a wood boat but it truly is a labor of love.

well We still haven't picked her up yet. I am currently going through my dive gear as she has a bit of growth on her that needs scraping before we run it to Campbell river.Yes I will have to scrape it under water for the trestle at the yard where she's moored is being refit along with the lifts so if I want her home soon I have to do it myself. she's going to need a refit before doing any sailing but I can handle most of the work myself along with my 16 year old son.

Talking new boat

Thanks allot, it was a big step but I spent most of my life on this coast and couldn't wait to get out there again.It has been 6 long years since I have been out on a boat and that was for work "commercial diving".not sailing which I've always had a love affair with,good thing my fiance' understands.
