    Hi there Boaty,

    Hope you are well my friend? This is Len here. I was wondering if you could perhaps drop me an email ... I would like to talk to you privately if that's ok with you? My email is bluewaters2812 at yahoo dot co dot uk.
    Kind regards.

    Hi I thought I would ask here. Basically I found my perfect Moody 30 in Ipswich and I need to get it to North Wales. Having problem finding a way to get it up here. I'm told by friends that the journey could take weeks and the standard of sailing needed on the south coast is very high and they don't recommend i do it till i get more experience. Hate to miss out on this Moody 30. Can anyone recommend a cheap but good delivery service by sea or road? She has plotters and radar etc and totally seaworthy.

    All is well. Snapped the boom in half coming across in Feb but no problem. Except that I had to spend more $$ when I arrived.

    Will I see you in LP this next season?

    Hey Boatman...I was sorry to see your "Atlantic Delivery " thread end although I suppose you probably was glad. It's amazing how many negative people participated but in the end they faded away. You have some great Friends her on CF, Atoll would be at the top of the list it seems to me. I hope the remainder of your trip went well....

    boayman 61 you mentioned a couple items in your list of what you have been asked for at portd of entry. Could clarify: Qualifications for what? 3rd party insurance? Provisions on board? Did any ask about fire arms? Pets? Prescription meds?
    The wife and I are thinking seriously about hanging it up and just live from Bahamas to Grenada.
