As I have just purchased a new (at least to me) boat, I thought I would say hi.
I have been sailing on and off in the UK since I was 14, which means the better part of 32 years on and off. I haven't owned a yacht since shortly after the birth of my daughter some 12 years ago, but following the breakup of my marrage, I figured it's time to get back to the water
Never one to shy away from a challenge, I have just purchased a Lindhe and Holmburg designed 1/2 tonner, built in 1973 from GRP.
She needs a decent refit
, this having been started by the previous owner, but is otherwise in good condition.
she has a number of problems, not least of which was a cracked P bracket and a soft core
below the mast
(inner skin removed by the previous owner)
she is 29' 4" long with a definately race interior
at the moment, but hopefully she will make a fine cruiser.
I have plans involving changes to the internal layout (girlfriend want a shower
, but then so do I lol,) as well as heat and power overhalls.
Next weekend begins the electrical
rewire designed for all LED lighting
, all in thin wall tinned cable.
