if you ever see a black schooner somewhere come over and say hi (have a shower if you want).



Will do,sounds like there could be a queue though....

just being aboard a yacht with standing room would be a luxury!


Thanks again for the books BP

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Well done - she looks a lovely wee ship, enjoy the trailer sailer scene.

I had a trailer sailer for 6 years - loved it (but thought keeler would be better soooooo sold her and bought a small keeler.....), have had the keeler for the last 5 years - seriously thinking of going back to trailer yachting.

Nothing against keelers, but several things (including cost) making me second guess the decision to go to keelers.

 

Keep up the blog!!!!

We still have the trailersailer in the front yard - was really awesome to sell my last yacht but still have a yacht to go sailing on - last summer we put hard anti-foul on it and put it on the poles at westhaven.  Since bringing it home it's cost $0.00 - love it!  

The new boat on the other hand...

BP we went out yesterday, saw a big black yacht and climbed aboard, got yelled at by about 40 screaming school kids!!!!!

I said "I just want to have a shower" as the angry mob threatened violence and chased me off their boat!!!!!

Your boat is called "spirit of New Zealand" isn't it??
