I have been a member for a number of years, but have not been active.

I come from a sailing background, mainly in yachts, but have been involved with dinghy's through my son who has started competing on the Cadet circuit in the last couple of years.

I am involved in our local sailing club as a parent, typically doing safety cover, coaching, cooking or general dogs body as we seem to turn into when kiddies start doing activities.

We have started traveling a reasonable amount for competitions, which either causes us to lose a rib from the lake or end up taking something which is really not suitable for the conditions and water they sail in.

I am looking to get a Rib which I can use for inshore safety work (outside Brigham harbor in the bay, for example) we well as some calmer day bay hopping with the rest of the family.

I would like a project, as I enjoy renovating things. Currently finishing a 1979 VW Bay window, which is a nut and bolt/bare metal renovation. It might not have meant to be, but once the paint and filler was removed, the bottom 1/3rd of the van needed replacing/repairing.

I'm looking forward to getting help and advice along the way, from those who know considerably more than me.

Many thanks


One day it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine
