Hi there Codprawn & Hannah, yes i am from Liverpool originally ,how did you guess ??
And Hannah i have my boat at a marina near Long island.About 45 mins from Manhattan.I have just spent a couple of hours on Sunday exploring a place called Jones Beach and this weekend the weather is expected to be about 72 + 76 degrees Saturday & Sunday so hopefully i will get 2 days out.
I had a smaller inflatable (10 ft)for a few years with a 8 hp Tohatsu outboard which i used mostly in & around the Lower Hudson river & the Statue of liberty area etc.But recently as you may guess security is a big issue here so i did not use it for a summer or two. Then i went to the NY boat show in February of this year and the pics are the end result of not leaving your credit card at home when you go to the boat show.
