Well now you all know the story, the updates will resume. Over the last few days, I have been on a small road trip from Cornwall to Southampton, up to Dover and on the ferry to Calais, then up through France and Belgium to Holland to collect the new raft. Now I am currently sitting in the passenger seat somewhere in Belgium on my way home. 

The plan is to work on the boat over the next few days and have her ready for the maiden voyage at the weekend. Fortunately I have learned lots from the last boat, so some of the jobs can be fast tracked. 

One very important job is to name the newest girl in my life. Because I'm a sentimental softy I want to go down the Cornish theme. Currently she is temporarily named Lowenna, but I am open to offers! 

Stay tuned for pictures from the build and the "pimp my boat" process!
