This is our first boat, and is moored at
Garstang Marina on the Lancaster Canal. Owning a boat has long been a dream of
my girlfriend, a nd after a
couple of trips on hire boats, we both decided to try for our own boat. Chose this one after scouring the mags for prices and visiting all the moorings in our area, plus finding your Website helped a lot. Have had her for over a month now and done several trips out, and thoroughly enjoyed them despite a couple of minor problems with bits and pieces, and the windscreen is so badly crazed it is being replaced. Have tightened up the steering, and following the tips on your Forum, will start to add ballast to try and stop the dreaded Norman Wandering. Intend to haul her out in spring, clean and antifoul the hull, service the engine, and look forward to a good season next year. If all goes well may trade up to a bigger boat. One we can stand up in!!
Hope to change the boats name to Yes Dear if SHE will let me.
