    Default Your boating history!

    Firstly my apologies if this has been done before but I can’t remember it at all and if it’s been a while then maybe a refresh isn’t a bad thing!!

    I was reflecting on how my boat owning history had evolved before arriving at my current boat and drew up a list (below) which tells a story of the type of boating I do, how life has moved on (children, wives etc) and of course affordability.

    1. Sailing dinghies including OK, Fireball etc
    2. J24
    3. Narwhal 5m Rib with Suzuki 85hp
    4. Chinook 6.25, Rib with Mercruiser inboard
    5. Scorpion 7.5m Rib with Mercury 200hp Optimax
    6. Riva Bravo 38 with twin Sabre 300hp
    7. Fairline Squadron 58 with twin Volvo 715hp

    As I found this an interesting journey would others like to share their own journeys?

    1. A Clinker built gunter rigged dinghy that leaked like a sieve.
    2. A Challenger dinghy, of which there seems to be no record on the internet, no one on YBW remembers, this is a good thing, we can pretend it never happened as it was a POS.
    3. Hornet
    4. Laser
    5. GP14
    6. Fairey Huntress
    7. Fairey Huntsman 28
    8. Fairey Huntsman 31
    9. Fairey Bulldog 31

    There's a few more small Fairey ducklings etc too.

    I like Fairey boats!

    It is a bit sad but signing on for every race soon gets them stuck in your head. I really miss the RS300, the only boat I used to regularly pitchpole. So fast but so uncontrollable!

    As a child dad owned:
    Birchwood 27 Countess - twin 4.108 Perkins
    Some kind of inflatable that was mine with a 2hp Tohatsu!
    Recently changed the Countess to a Birchwood Challenger 320 with twin AD41s and last year a Prestige 36 with KAD43's that I use from time to time

    In 2009 we decided to keep the bug alive for our family:
    1. 1996 Sealine S24 with a 4.3 Volvo 205hp
    2. 2002 Sealine S28 with twin KAD 32's
    3. 2006 Sealine S34 with twin Volvo D4's & Zodiac 340 Yachtline RIB with a 30hp Yamaha for the kids!

    Where next I wonder! SC35 or SC38 in 4-5 years time probably.

    That's an odd progression Mike.
