Madness setting in!
(Nr. Leicester UK)
What a great site.
In the last few months I have developed an irresistible urge to buy/own a wooden sailing cruiser.
I have never sailed!!!
I have never even been onboard a sailing boat.
My only experience of water borne transport is kayaking,which I greatly enjoyed.
But the weather got colder and I get older, so the need for some comfortable way of getting around on the water has to be found.
And to make matters worse I am drawn to old boats that need lots and lots of care and attention.
I should really know better at my age (65).
Cars I understand and have restored 2 or 3 in my time, but wooden boats!!!!
My wife thinks I have maybe developed some form of mental illness.
However the idea of restoring a boat is getting stronger day by day.
Finding your website has not really helped.
It is great, so much helpful information.
I need to find someone to take me out on a boat, either to confirm the problem is treatable and I forget the whole idea or that I enjoy it so much the outcome is inevitable and I start on the journey to old wooden boat ownership.
Once again a great informative site
Hopefully my wife will come around in the end!!
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
