Good evening

or morning or night depending on were you are.

My name is Michael Max and I have been lurking on here for a bit and finally decided to take the plunge. I have been boat-less for the last 5 years but am going to get another boat soon and this time for good. That itch just never goes away does it? I am originally from Germany but have live on the Canary island for 13 years and have been in the UK for 2 now. I had a dive center over on Tenerife but sold up when my mother got terminal cancer to come here to help her out. well she died on the 21 of December and now I have no reason to stay here. So once i have things sorted out here in the UK I am going to buy a boat, live on it and see the part of the world I have not been to yet. Back in Germany I worked on a life boat and am Life boat skipper, rescue diver and fireman at sea. The last boat I had, I built myself made out of steel. It was a Dutch design, with a flat bottom, so I could let it fall dry in the tidal waters of the north sea in the area where I lived and worked. This time I am going to buy a used GRP boat though. I am looking around and quite like the Endurance 37 It is a long keel heavy displacement design. Not fast but looks to be sea kindly and roomy enough for me and my gear. I don't know if they are popular or common at your side of the pond but I quite like the idea of a wheelhouse to get out of the wet and cold when under way alone but still be able to have the controls close to hand when and if needed.
Anyway.... that's enough rambling from me for now.

ATB


Michael
