I'm Back - New Boat

Hi everyone. After a couple of years hiatus the wife and I are back to being sailboat owners. Sold the last one in early 2009 because of ridiculous marina prices, a rampant teenage daughter and general work commitments!



Our new boat is an Albin Vega we picked up locally. She isn't too much of a project but we'll have her out of the water for a couple of months for a tidy up while we fit a new inboard engine and .... woo-hoo!... an electric anchor winch.

Can't wait to be cruising back on the water.
