Greetings Fellow Boaties

I am presently working on a 56' timber trawler to make it habitable for the trouble& strife and 5 kids. Trying to get the kids enthused without much success so far. ( can't plug the xbox in yet & no facebook on board ) Hopefully persistence will overcome resistance! Have been following some interesting threads and looking forward to learning from the many experianced ( I think I spelt that wrong ) cruising folk in this forum.
Cheers and hello

Re: Greetings fellow boaties

Welcome to the madness.
How old are the offsprings. have a dress-up pirate party, invite their friends, younger kids love to explore a big wooden boat. It will add a unique feature to their personalities amongst their friends aand instill a sense of pride.
