    Your excitement is palpable. Which is a great thing

    I remember after buying mine (1st cruiser) I just went numb, wondered if I had lost my sanity, was late to it's delivery and saw it sat at the bottom of the lift in the water and got nervous. Climbed aboard and was a bit scared to start her up, bailed, and got the marina to put her in her temp berth before I could occupy my permanent mooring. Hopefully my next boat will fill me with your excitement rather than that dread.

    Scared really. I know its a minnow compared with some on here, but its a whole lot bigger than previous.
    Also coming so far and the organisation required has kept us occupied for the last week.

    Welcome to Princess ownership.
    And a flybridge.
    You know that you have grown up when you own a flybridge boat.

    The journey starts.
    Now loaded on the LowLoader courtesy of the nice guys at Van De Wetering.
    Due to cross Rotterdam - Purfleet tonight and make their way round the M25 and along the M4 to West Wales tomorrow.
    Apologies in advance to any forumites held up by it.
    Give them a wave if you see them.Transport 1.jpgTransport 2.jpg

    Wishing her safe travels. The North Wales faction should have a meet with the West Wales faction at some point. Maybe a halfway point in Cardigan Bay. Do the Dovey Fest in August or something.

    All arrived safely. Followed the convoy for the last 30 miles.
    Superb driver from van de Wetering.
    Just made it in time before the light went. Not permitted to travel in the dark.
    Crane off at 8 tomorrow morning.
