Just joined, so hello from South Wales!

Hello everyone, just joined

We're a busy family (wife, young son and baby daughter) so when we're not working we take every opportunity to take the kids out and about in our camper van. Much rather have them outside experiencing everything the outside world has to offer, than being glued to a TV/PC screen

A fair bit of time is spent on various beaches with kites, bikes, digging holes, fishing etc

On our last trip we went on a RIB excursion from just outside Cardigan and had a great time............ a few weeks later I acquired our first watercraft!

We came across a small Zodiac Serie 1, with Johnson 4HP outboard. The boat is in excellent condition, and the motor runs well. We're in the process of picking up life jackets and essentials and the motor is off to be properly serviced/checked over before we have our first try out.

I'll no doubt be back here reporting progress!

I feel it may be the beginning of something beautiful!

Cheers Bern

I'm off to search for a manual for the Zodiac and the Johnson, so we'll see what turns up.

Lifejackets have turned up, so staring to get everything together!
