Hi from a newbie

Hi to all, not a liveaboard (yet anyway) but spending more and more time on the boat together with more and more money!
We live in Kent (UK) and the Moody lives in the Med at Port Napoleon for the winter and next summer while we cruise the S of France. Getting a shed load of work/upgrades done over the winter including bow-thruster, gantry and new power sources, coppercoat etc. etc.
Roll on April!!!!
Cheers,
Jim (& Kim)
Siempre of Dartmouth
Moody 425
