another oldie

Hi everybody.
Realy great to find a real sailing forum. Sally and I live aboard our Colvic Watson 32 Motor Sailor in Morlaix Brittany France. We got married after a 10 year engagement and retired in 2001. We lived aboard our 6 ton falmouth pilot that we built for 3 years then in 2005 went to the med ( Alicante Spain) to buy our present boat. We come from the Channel Island of Guernsey where I was in the boatbuilding business and Sally was A financial wizard for a local garage group. I have been sailing for 52 years and Sally has been sailing for 18 years. I now run a Marine Consultancy and Sally is a financial consultant. We spend most of our time helping people (for Free) with their boats and look after several boats here for absent owners. We both look forward to many hrs on this site and would love to help anyone we can. If any one is interested we have a blog the address is :
theguerns.blogspot.com

Happy sailing to you all
