    Good News Had To Share

    Upped our offer today as our original one was declined , it's not too far away from the asking price and what the estate agents have said the vendors are hoping for, so pretty confident that it will be accepted, our little boat has been sold and has been trailered away today, never thought that would be so hard to watch , gonna miss it more than I thought..

    Good News Had To Share

    We have placed an offer on a property in Ludham and its not yet been accepted but is under consideration, exciting times for us but still panicking if it does get accepted, may be looking for a permanent mooring as well as a new boat , no more paying to get our boat trailered across country , just arrived back after a six hour drive but fingers crossed wont have to do that too many more times...

    Better spending money upgrading the 90's galley and dated interior rather than tech, im sure that will make more of a difference to mum and partner than an upgraded charger and air con , get them out on the water and save the gadgets for indy

    Why on earth do you need AC on a boat that size, if its just a weekend boat you might encounter half a dozen days a year ,just open the windows and drop the canopy

    Single Parent Hiring Boats

    Ever so slightly different circumstances but how does this effect me hiring with a disabled partner, ok the booking is for two adults but as the wife is pretty much wheelchair bound she does not helm the boat nor assist in mooring, so I am in effect solo hiring, can't really see any difference to a single hirer plus the fact I have other things to take care of ie the wife, never had any questions asked before but would like to think this decision won't affect us, well I hope not anyway....

    If Robin wants to post his whole life on various forums,YouTube,the internet for the whole world to read then surley he is going to get some negative comments or replys that he doesn't like, he posted on ybw as a newbie to sea going boats to many many people who are far more experienced than him and chose to ignore their advice and some of his replies like "i wouldnt have stabs if they were free"are bound to cause replies that rile some people nothing wrong with that IMHO you only get one shot at life and you don't know what's around the corner so do whatever you feel is right, myself I don't get why Robin bought the boat he did,the way he did ,the place its moored but hey ho that's what he wanted to do so he did it, so good for him and I wish him all the best, been a follower of the blogs from day one and totally enjoyed every single one of them, in the past couple of weeks the first thing I have done in the mornings is check the Indy thread,good on you Robin I hope you have many happy times on the boat, do whatever makes you happy and ignore everyone else ,made up for you and the new adventure and look forward to the following updates..

    Well done guys , but every picture posted looks like she is rolling heavily, maybe all the advice you had regarding stabilisers was right ,must of been a rough ride
  12. Thanks just ordered 12 mm 30m braid on braid, I won't even attempt to splice it ,lots of knots will do for me.....
  13. Looking to purchase new mooring lines but a bit stuck as to what size and type , my boat is a 23ft viking ,the cleats are pretty small and the maximum size rope that will fit is around 12mm, i was hoping to buy a 30m coil so I have plenty spare to rope it how I want, which type is best ,polypropylene, braided, double braid, braid on braid, its a bit of a minefield, looking to order some tonight so I can do it Tuesday or Wednesday...
