First 405, Back in the Family

A couple of weeks ago I was checking out boats on the market back in Melbourne when I stumbled across my uncles old First 405 which he bought new in 1988 and sold about 5 years later. I sent the ad to my uncle so he could reminisce.

When another uncle (by marriage) heard it was for sale he jumped at the opportunity and bought it, so now it is back in the family

If I did not already have my Jeanneau I would have seriously considered buying it myself.

You could have named it the UncUncNeph boat.

The former owner uncle will be sailing with me in a couple of weeks and I will be interested in hearing his reaction.
