And here is my news. Ive been a little absent lately whilst somewhat busy with someone special. Therefore im most proud and pleased to anounce that I am now officially no longer single
and whats more, 'we' have a boat too.
We first met a few weeks ago when Alan decided It was too risky to keep chatting to me online, and he flew in to check me out for real and stake his claim. All went very well and we decided to take things a step further, so I paid him a return visit in Sardinia in the med and got home earlier today.
We spent the week onboard the boat and im hooked. Shes a Fisher
46, built in 1982 and the last of the glass bottom variety. She has a few mod cons inc 2 heads with large showers, a huge aft cabin
, a large double berth in the front cabin
plus 2 more bunks and hanging space and draws, 8kva gen, washing
machine, upright fridge freezer
, fully pumped hot and cold water
heated from the gen and Ford Sabre
120hp. Roto furling
in main and mizzen masts, huge pilot house with most electric
Alan is even better. Tall dark and handsome, a retired surgeon with no ties and lots of dreams to fullfill with the right woman.
The boat was hauled 2 weeks ago and we have planned 3-4 months of maintenance
and work before we depart for Greek waters next summer, and after that, the world is our lobster.
Alan is a real hunny and says if I can make a watermaker
, I can have all the hot water
showers I want, so my immediate project
is getting plans and making a list of parts
