Respect!!! Not so many people rebuild yachts before they know how to sail! Good Luck in your project.

Not sure about Portsmouth, but marinas I have been into in UK are opening up their bars to public - dwindling funds, I guess, and do a wicked Sunday Lunch; as well as having noticeboards for skippers who need crew.... have you been to your local yet?

sometimes one has to take a completely different direction in life ( hence the yacht ) plus one has to much time on ones hand. and its interesting to do a project. you never know might end up sailing around the world .lol

Maybe we'll end up rubbing bows some day then (metaphorically, hopefully. Obviously I didn't mean literally.)

Good luck with with the project, and learning to sail, sure you'll find someone looking for crew in your area.
