If we don’t buy a boat now, we never will

We had talked about buying a boat for at least 12 years, but it never quite happened. We did all the research, did all the sums and knew more about toilets than a normal person would admit to.

Then one day, we finally made the decision and before we knew it we had put a deposit down and the dream had turned into reality.

Yikes! What have we done?

So now that we are boat owners, we want to share the journey with you. We know it won’t be plain sailing all the way but hopefully there will be plenty of good times to enjoy.
