    Took the 30hp off the Shetland boat yesterday.
    Put a 1996 75hp engine on instead. All done and up and running and ready to go.
    So I now have a 30hp outboard and doner ski boat to get rid of.

    It's all Tom1's fault!

    Sitting outside our local lakeside pub during the recent heatwave got me thinking about buying a small dinghy to learn to sail.

    Something just big enough for 2 of us and Digger if he's willing.

    Sitting outside our local lakeside pub during the recent heatwave got me thinking about buying a small dinghy to learn to sail.

    Something just big enough for 2 of us and Digger if he's willing.

    Anyway trawling through some adverts I found this and as it was only an hour and a half's drive away we went and viewed it.

    A 2007 Nutshell Lugger

    I thought maybe the advert photos were a bit flattering of the dinghy but no, it was every bit as good as it looked so it didn't take long to agree a deal, dismantle the rigging and hook it up to our only vehicle with a towbar.

    Once home the first job was to try and remember how it all went back together....

    I have no dinghy experience by the way, but it all seemed fairly straight-forward and I think I've mostly got it right. And practicing in the quiet of one of our barns has got to be better than infront of others at the lake.

    So now I've just got to learn to sail!

    Thanks Tom1

    I'm away at last!
    Left home in the rain, but now sat in the sun by the side of the River Hamble.
    Boat is on the mooring ready to use and camper is parked up for the week.
    It's nice to find a marina with a campsite joined to it. I have paid money...
