Hello everyone my name is Lucas, iam 25 years old.
I have bean living in gibsons harbour on various boats since i was 11.
Starting with a cal
25 (my dads.)
seeking independance in my early teens i purchased delapidated ex-fishing boat and later a sinking wooden wreck.
both of which were foul nastly full time projects just to keep floatint (but a cheap
place to call home)
however for the last two years I have been the proud owner of a 1978 fortune 30.
Ownerbuilt right here in Gibsons by a local man and wife.
After 3 solid years of working as a marine
construction labourer (hard work)
iam moments away from paying off this boat, the first of which im truley proud to be the owner of.
Countless late nights and long weekends went into upgrading her many hinden wires and plumbing
Im still living aboad and still fixing her up.
Now it gets exciting though all my pennies are going to savings so in 11 more months (Sept.)
I can untie the lines and fufill one of my many dreams.....Cruising.
Iam mostley wrighting this longwinded hello to thank all you wonderful people for allowing me to
eavsdrop on your many years of accumulated knowledge.
It has been a great asset recently, mostley for non-bias product reviews
(wind generators ect.)
Thanks again and Happy cruising to you all.
