    Default Re: Poss next project, but what is it ?????????????????

    That is a well written peace fella. 100% agree. It does takes a type of person, and it is not really derailing the thread as it understanding a project and this thread is about a project. Good for folk to see and understand a lot on why folk do these things.

    Myself aswell, as you know, i have never had a car in all 20 odd that works when i buy it, i fix it keep it for a while then flog it to buy another. Just love it.



    And thanks for the post, it is exactly what i would say to folk when they ask why not buy a boat to go.

    Forgive me, I skipped from the first page to this last page. (atm) thinking that that thing is a shed but ... when I saw what you did with your last project my hat is off to you buddy..

    You do what I do, well done bro, I started fixing boats when I was mitching school going to the harbour.
    Bought my first boat at 10yrs old, I had to lift glasses in a hotel bar at wages £1 an hour to work off this 10ft sailing boat owned by the owner of a hotel in Portballintrae for this wee dory sailing punt..
    I did the work hrs, he wanted eighty quid for the wee boat and to be honest my father was quite hard on me, - he wouldnt help me with anything.. I got it really tight but after 70 hrs my mother said that she'd pay the last tenner.

    I ended up on the trawlers in Portavogie. There was no better place to be.

    I've always been close to the sea and close to MB fibreglass in Belfast and Whale pumps in Bangor.

    ............................................

    If it had been anyone else I'd say leave it. I'll not say that to you after seeing your last project.

    Very well done bro.

    People on here can be very grumpy, I don't know why, it must be a sail thing and they're cross for having no diesel lol - but there is a wealth of knowledge this forum.

    Sometimes we love each other, (I can't remember when) but the thing is, at sea - we have each others backs and at the end of the day we are better than airplane drivers... My Sis married a ryanair pilot.. I said from one skipper to another...

    well thats another story.

    Now that’s a boat
    That’s a boat that You could really renovate and be proud of
    Not saying Khashi ain’t to be proud of
    But you know what I mean
    Google or Wikipedia etc if you ain’t yet!
    Then you will see what’s what about the ‘build’
    Sorry
    Grannies and eggs etc!

    Good enough for James Bond
    Billy Butlin
    And
    Deborah Kerr
    Sabres in it too
    Them is good too
    ‘Fixable’
    Proper thing that vessel could be

    Thats a hell of a find, Ben. The engines alone must be worth more than the asking price.
