Just wondering what everyone is up to, is anyone still out cruising regularly?

Up on the hard for the winter, plenty of jobs to do after Christmas...

Still visiting once a week to check on her and soak up the peace at the marina.

Now starting to gather the bits on my list...

Staying in the water this year. We're lucky down here in St Ives bay with some good days when the wind has some south / east in it.

Yes, we cruise all the year round. You have to remember though that I am no longer a shetland owner, having moved onto bigger things :o

We intend to spend New Year on the boat

I'm still trying to find a trailer, to move my boat from the river to my house, for winter refurb!
It's only 1.2 miles so £180+ to hire one seems silly..

Leaving our Blackhawk in again this winter. The Broads can be stunning on fine winter days!

Up to my eye balls refurbing our Black Hawk windows.
Very time consuming!!

Good luck with the windows, I plan to replace mine in the speedwell this winter.
Having located a trailer now, it won't be long before I get started! :)
