But whilst my daughter was out in holland for 2 years she was crew on an Arie Visser class boat, having been an ALB navigator in the uk and again now she is back here, so knows far more than me. Was out in all weathers, brilliant boat as far as she was concerned esp when compared to her Tyne.
The 85 where I am at the moment only spent a few week here before it went back cos of defects and its still away ages later!
think the big k.n.r.m boat visited the uk a few weeks back calling at whitby as it was undertaking some endurance run from the netherlands to the faroes, or someplace ,,,,with regards to your articals in the r.i.b. mag used to look forward to your down to earth articals in boat fisherman mag before it was taken over ,kindest regards mart

What! Bundle them of into some dark corner to tell tall tales of the hairiest wettest snatches they've done. No, let 'em stride God-like amongst us. Where we can see them...
