A New Chapter Begins .....

Time to announce that the sale of my flybridge has now been completed, i'm sure there are many on here who have sold a boat before and understand how i'm feeling, relieved, sad, nervous, etc.

I had some good times on Kamara and she certainly taught me a hell of a lot, I hope she serves her new owner as well. She was my home and my pride and joy and will be missed.

However, as the tittle suggests, a new start has already begun. As we speak, our very own 'Boatman61' is on board my new vessel and as I type this, should be somewhere along the south coast of the UK before heading south towards northern Spain where I will join him for the second half of the journey down to the Med' sometime next week.

Here's hoping my new boat, curently named 'Rubessa', will serve me as well as Kamara.

Congratulations! Very impressive
I'm sure you'll notch up some good times on her.

What have you done with the mast???
