We just got the boat `Freedom` at the beginning of September this year. It's our first & we're over the moon with it.

At present we've got it moored up for the winter in order to do jobs like painting the outside of the cabin & decks (the hull up to the deckline has been repainted by the previous owner whilst out of the water earlier this year for boat safety inspection), repainting inside the cockpit, and replacing floor coverings.

On our ever increasing programme of improvements we plan at some stage in the none to distant to replace the engine with a diesel. At present it has a Morris 1000 fitted, which is a fine & reliable little beast, but at 2 hours cruising to a gallon of 4 star it`s not the most economical of craft. We will be looking for a little smoker as soon as funds permit!

We've had 7 or 8 weekend cruises so far and thoroughly enjoyed our new venture finding it hard to wait for spring to be out & about again on the Lanky, and maybe further!!
