'Chortle' is our new family sailing boat. She is a Sadler 29, with bilge keels, twin skinned and polyurethane filled hull (apparently unsinkable) and was built in 1984. She has received considerable amounts of TLC this summer, a refurbishment infact from dad and we now begin our adventures.

So far chortle has been left but for winterising. But every weekend i jave tried to find a wee job o cam do. This has mostly been removing unwanted fittings. Fergus has now and again offered to help this has been very encouraging for dad. All these little jobs will easy to work in the spring when i set too full time to get chortle cruising ready for the sea way. Spending a lot of time working out what, how and in what order the work schedual should look like. Having had the survey done all the major stuff is good, so all tlc may now be applied without fear of wasting my time. Buffing and protecting gel coat is not a job i am looking forward to however did a test patch yesterday and although mindless and it is now shiny. Oh dear am i fulling pre to shiny things.
