Starting them young....

Oscar has been coming out on Ribs with me since he was two... Hard to believe he's nine now !

I pasted this together from Cornwall this year so he can show his friends what ribs are all about !...

Thanks Jeff, I remember when I was his age all I wanted was a boat to potter around in but unfortunately my folks were not into it at all... As soon as he hits double figures I am going book him in for some courses...

His brother Charlie is going to be mad for it too, he is always out tinkering with my tools in the shed...

These two were 9 and 7 in 2006 when this was taken.
They've been enjoying mucking about in boats since they were a couple of years old, which is when Mrs Nasher first let me take them out with me.

Hard to believe they are now 18 and 16.
Ones several inches taller than me and the other is the same height as me now.

Where did the time go.
