Good point - and an eminently useful purpose for a flat twin Briggs BMW engine  ;)

Be fair John,
Some of them work very hard during the winter.
Lets hope the best of our yesterdays are the worst of our tomorrows

... and if he'd had BMW power the craft would have been cowering in the garage for the last five months - along with all the other BMW powered craft  :P :D ;D

I needed to see a chap who lives about 8 miles down the river. Obviously theres only one way to travel on such a journey! Here's Sabrina parked on his slipway...

We have quite a few lightships on the Medway. One has been converted to apartments you can rent and another is an arts and party venue.

Once the days are long enough, I like to go out at 6am on a weekend. Get a couple of hours cruising in then pick up some fresh bread or croissants on the way home for the family. Everyone's happy  ;D

                            Good  thinking  Gavin.

Thanks - Britannia is a bit over 400 kgs but Cambria is OK - although she is up for sale :-(

Once things normalise let me know. I tend to go out at short notice when the weather is good, and I'm susceptible to persuasion anytime its decent. Which goes for anyone with a quiet, seaworthy craft weighing less than 400kg with lifting points.

Freshspring may be going to Devon soon for restoration.  I don't have any info on the light vessel.

I'm now highly frustrated having seen those pics but I'm grounded at present for 3rd party 'medical reasons' :-(
