Re: Hello from sunny Scarborough

welcome onboard
Scarborough and coble (and its Coble with one b )would indicate Scarborough in Yorkshire, UK. Cobble is a traditional fishing boat very much still in use along the Yorkshire and Northumberland coast.
Not so sure about the sunny bit.

Re: Hello from sunny Scarborough

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you posting here. This forum is a great learning tool. Is the coble something you cobbled together?
kind regards,
