Looks nice Codders. Ref the Hole in the Stern, I guess they're gonna blank it off as all the deck water will gush down there otherwise.

Did you say if you're sailing her home or going by Ferry, would make an ineresting thread if you first major voyage was to South Wales.

Any thoughts on Names for her?

IF I could afford the petrol I would be bringing it back by sea but my discovery does 28mpg as opposed to 3mpg for the boat!!!

I will prob be coming back to Weymouth or Poole by boat and then onto a trailer to tow home.

When? Maybe some boats could come to meet you? Anyone up for it?

if you can get 28 to the gallon out of a disco then you are doing well, and you certainly wont get that when towing!!!
