    Default Got home to a nice surprise!

    Moorings Officer at Marconi rang Mrs FC to offer us a mooring, but we have to hurry, as the laying party is in the next couple of weekends.

    Offer accepted on the spot

    Quick dash round to buy:

    2 x 70lb Danforths, Maldon Marine
    1 Large Mooring buoy, Dauntless
    1 Pick up buoy Dauntless
    3 Mooring Strops, Dunno yet
    1 Length of 10mm chain as I am away a lot at the moment, Dauntless
    43m of Chain and Shackles - Marconi Club stock

    So an unexpected 900 quid hole in the budget, but I have a mooring, Yay!!!

    A bit of a rush round, and my only opportunity is weekend of 28th/29th, I am still working in foreign climes next weekend.

    Full Circle will get to its new home mid June I hope.

    Result!!

    what about setting up a little camera and a link to the outside world so that you can log on when in Turkey and watch the seals go by ?


    A result indeed. Freedom!
    I think, therefore I am. I am, therefore I sail.

    Happy to check the security of your mooring from time to time - if you are not on it of course!

    Have always found a friendly welcome at Marconi.

    Sure you will enjoy it.

    Such a lovely spot, and you will be sailing in five minutes too. Expect big savings on diesel.
    It is never too late to have a happy childhood. Buy a boat.
