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!
