This is a picture of my old boat taken by a friend from his boat I sailed from Largs to East Loch Tarbert going south of the Isle of Bute it took about 7 hours. The boat is a replica of the boats that used to take the Pilots out to the incoming ships to Glasson Dock on the River Lune that runs into Lancaster.
The boat is now in my back garden so I can crack on and finish the fit out inside I’ll post progress has it happens
Work has took over this week so I am going to the boat this weekend , if I can get the boat lifted out I ‘ll get her on the trailer in the yard if the crane driver is not there I ‘ll get the fit out started. I ll post some pics tomorrow of the inside. Here us a couple of pictures from the day I turned over the boat.
Last weekend I was sailing down south in the Solent we sailed from Gosport . It was a good weekend with wind of 20 kn on Saturday and less than 10 kn on Sunday. I forgot my camera so I have no pics of the boat which is a shame it was a Victoria 34 the type of boat you would feel comfortable in setting off across an ocean although they are a bit slow for hopping around the coast. Horses for courses!
The coming weekend will be spent emptying TALON ready to be lifted out of the water and taken back to the workshop to be fitted out internally .
I went sailing this weekend in Scotland from Troon to Rothesay on the Isle of Bute and back on a friends boat a Mystere Flyer 27 I was trying to film and steer at the same time
