Hull Builder sorted

Whilst on our visit to Fernwood we looked at two hulls in their workshop, one by Tim Tyler and one by Alexander boats.  Looking at the two we preferred the Alexander hull so following Julia's advice  to speak to the builder we have booked a visit to the factory at the weekend to see them and discuss our build with them.

We've also been busy on the house front and think we may just have found somewhere we both like.  It needs a bit of work but has plenty of potential for us.  That in mind we have arranged a second viewing on Thursday and are planning to put in an offer.  We're also getting valuations on our own home and are please to find it's worth what we thought so are putting it on the market if our offer on the other property is accepted.

 Chris and I went for a run out to some of the local marinas to look at moorings and have settled on the new Tattenhall Marina.  We like the site and the staff there are extremely helpful.  We are going to reserve our mooring for AmyJo in the new year so at least we know we have somewhere to moor her.  It's probably a bit too soon to be getting a mooring sorted now but in fact around these parts there are not many places vacant for a 65 foot boat.  Plenty for 57 foot and under so we decided we will put the deposit down in the new year and that will hold our spot until AmyJo is ready to reside on it.
