    I'm also thinking about getting myself a little Laser dinghy for some fast fun on the water....

    It will probably be a bit too much for Colin but I think I could manage it ok if not I can swim ok...

    Well we now have a nice little sailing dinghy, outboard and oars etc... so we are back on the water for just £400... bargain indeed... and sorted out our dinghy spot at our club today...

    We will be doing a few little jobs on the boat over the next few days, and servicing the Honda outboard, then we are launching into Langstone Harbour.... Colin was not very keen at first but now he can't wait to try it out I knew he'd come round to the idea...

    It looks like this... however our mainsail is much better as it's quite new and a much better colour/cut.. and one of the Honda outboard

    The dinghy has a gunter rig which is fantastic as you have a decent sail area without a very tall mast, the gaff is carried nearly vertical which extends the mast

    Indeed... as we are sea sailers we will eventually take it out in the Solent... we just don't care...

    If we get on with the 'little' boat we are already thinking about a larger Wayfarer or Wonderer

    In our 'larger' boats we have crossed the channel many times to France, which was a real blast..

    These are the larger boats we have owned...

    Island Plastics 24


    Cutlass 27 Long Keel


    Oceanbird 30 Trimaran


    Nicholson 32 Long Keel

    However 'smaller' boats are a lot of fun.. and if this weather continues it'll be great to get out on the water again...and for next to nothing money wise...

    Thanks Brian... however Henley is a just a bit too far for us....

    We moved to Portsmouth about 20 years ago, from Stevenage, as we got fed up of travelling so far for the sea and our boat club... we would never move 'inland' now ... we live about 10 minutes from our boat club which is on Langstone Harbour and just a stones throw from the Solent... we love it..

    Well we went completely mental today and purchased a lovely Wayfarer set up for racing but we will just use it for cruising about in. Got it from a lovely chap in our boat club

    So we now have two boats

    Some people have travelled thousands of miles in these lovely little boats

    Like this one
