That sounds a crappy time ...vaguely familiar to me however . I managed to keep a boat and was so so close to getting Alexs SR on Sat - but it sounds like its gone to the right place

This is exactly why I spend money on boats and cars and not women...

My next step was i had to move in with my mum which was very hard,Moving on to Nov 2011 still no work and rushed into hospital seven ops later and 3 months in hospital got out in Jan 2012, by this time just did not want to know or speak to any one.I then got a break got offered a little bit of work i was on my way back then a lot of work started coming my way and of course money.

Next step i got my own flat in Willaston had to buy everything for it now got myself a nice flat in a nice village.

Next was to decided what to do with my life as i was on my own,decided to do my training to become a rya power boat trainer also going as crew on a tall ship as a volunteer.

And then today got back the one thing i enjoy the most a boat

Ghostrider

So as you can see to hell and back
Similar situation here too mate, wife gets the house, furniture, kids, car, etc

I look after my kids "every" Friday to Sunday (all the time I'm not working) therefore pay to feed and entertain kids at weekends, and have to pay ex maintenance for the privilege

However like you I got a flat, then moved to a small house in Stockton Heath (not a million miles from Willaston)

Found I had no time to use my motorbike, bought a sib cause obviously I can use it when I have the kids with me, we all love it, took my new bird out on the water a few weeks ago..... It's all good :-)

Point of my post.... I'm interested in doing PB2 course soon, let me know if your still RYA training

Glad to hear you've come out of that and things are looking up. Good on you.

My wife has already reminded me if I ever stray she'll sell my boat. It seems to have the desired effect!
