New boat? . . . . almost . . . .


The surveyors been and gone. He was very thorough and has listed some work to be done.

Nothing horrendous, but some work to be done on the prop and prop shaft. Probably just a worn key-way . . . we shall see. The yard has been working on it for a while now and it is starting to “sound” expensive . . . bang bang bang!

Oh, well, nothing to do but wait . . . . waiting waiting waiting . . . very impatiently! 😉

Here’s some survey pictures and the boat’s anchor – I like the anchor it is a good size!

    • Welcome Col! Well done getting here! Well the hull is good (our main concern) – very good infact. Just some work to be done on the propellor and shaft – it is all out at the moment so it is starting to look and sound expensive . . . so we just have to sort the finer details of the deal, all being well, we should do that this morning. We’ll let you know and then you can have that champagne, have one for us too, we’ll be having several!


  4. Thanks Carole/Barrie, I think we’ll still be here when you get down this way – I still think we’ll be here when you have passed through this area and gone, I think we will still be here when you come back next year! . . . . sigh.
