Taking some time away from the boat refit

Having brought bertie bus, focus is now on completing a couple of jobs on that so myself and Laura can get away in it. Unfortunately this means the already slow pace of the refit on Quest is going to grind to a halt for a couple of months. I will finish Quest (I have no other option!) and I am missing not going out sailing on her, however I must prioritze the work on bertie first as its almost complete.However,  I still hope to update the blog with my usual kayaking trips in the mean time!

Brought a mothership

Not technically sailing but worth including on the blog. Myself and Laura purchased a VW T4 1.9TD campervan, which is to be know as bertie bus. Not a rushed purchase as we have wanted one for years, I am hoping it will further enhance my sailing and kayaking adventures by giving us a base to work from. It came almost complete aside from needing a roofrack, towball and 12v auxiliary electrics fitting.
