'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.
Now re engine selection is nearly complete all very exciting going for a brand new volvo penta d1 20. Now have to prep the boat to a standard fit for new engine. Fergus my first mate and i are attending to deck leeks. Off which there are loads had no problem finding majority as they let the light in. A dry boat would nt that be good. Essential in my book.
