We got a boat!

Pretty chuffed tonight, we finally got a boat.  I’ve previously mentioned that my father was a fisherman (and was at sea for 40 years) but has been boatless since 2005.  There have been whispers of getting a boat for a year or two, but tonight we finally did it!

First thing we did was give it a clean with the pressure washer.

I’m not sure I like the name ‘Osprey’.  It might grow on me, who knows.

She’s a 16 foot Orkney, with a 9.9 horsepower outboard engine.

Martin was quite taken with her too!

She’s in the barn tonight and will get a coat of paint before putting her to sea.  If it’s raining tomorrow, she may get painted sooner rather than later!
