What are your boats called Carl, and where can we see them, they sound great.

He doesn't own them anymore, that post was from 2007.

However Carl's boats were Usk and Lucy. Usk was burnt out by arson and ultimately dragged out and broken up. Lucy is being slowly restored at Braunston turn.

Edited to add: Wot Alan said. Must read the final page of a thread before replying! :)

I saw it when it when it was up for sale the first time, not a pretty site, all the paint on the aft cabin was coming of because of the rust under the paint and it was going into dry dock because the hull was breaking in half.
I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.
It does look nice now it's been re-painted. But Get the hull surveyed first.


It had a load of hull work done a few years ago IIRC.

He reversed in.




Our stern fender is long enough so that the rudder doesn't hit anything.

Often if we feel like a day out we'll drive the 2 hours to the marina, take the boat out for probably no more that 45 minutes, go to the pub for lunch, drive 2 hours home.


You really don't need to book a holiday to take the boat out or indeed go very far in order to get your boating fix :)
