We Have A Date

At long last we have have a date for our hull delivery, Julia rang to confirm that on March 19th our hull is due to arrive from Jonathan Wilson's and go into the slot that Whitefield will vacate at Fernwood. We just can't wait to get started, we have been over to Fernwood quite a few times over the last few weeks and have now picked all our finishes of wood (light oak) and laminates for walls and flooring for the bathroom. We have also picked the hull colours of a dark blue with silver pinstriping We also nipped to the Newark Boat Jumble and got some good deals on some mooring ropes, our spare bedroom has become a bit of a stockroom for all of purchaces and is starting to resemble a chandlery. Our Beta engine is ready to come in so things are starting to move in the right direction, it will be great to soon be able to post some photos of the build once it gets underway.
