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!!
