Just bought our first boat in mid August '04. We have re-named it "The Old Boy" after my Father in Law, who died last year, and ultimately allowed us to be able to afford to own a boat. The boat came with a Yamaha 8 hp 2-stroke, but after a few problems we have just splashed out on a brand new Mariner 5 hp 4-stroke, hoping it gives us the peace of mind cruising that we are after.
We are based on the river Tees, a much maligned part of the country, yet incredibly peaceful, and beautiful. Still learning the ropes, so to speak.
Photos to follow.


The "Old Boy" is now almost complete, having had new windows and screen, new engine, new canopy, and a new Boat Safety cert in May 2005
