Cara Mia is a Norman 23 built about 1980 as near as we can
find out, and had been newly upholstered and carpeted throughout. I completed
the purchase of her on 7th September 2005. She is fitted as a four berth and has
a Honda 4 stroke 10HP outboard engine. I have added a 12 volt inverter to her
specifications, and will shortly be wiring her for mains electricity, which the
Marina is making available this winter. I also have a portable GPS that I owned
before I bought her. "Cara Mia" is berthed at Bridgehouse Marina, Garstang on
