We are getting ready to overwrite this site with the real thing

Details of Black Bess

Black Bess is a 50ft trad fitted out by Stowe Hill Marine on a Reeves hull and delivered in May 2004. She is fitted out for Anne and I to cruise in comfort with the occasional visitors using either the blow up bed or the convertable chairs in the saloon. She is a low line tug style with all portholes and powered by a Beta 38 and is black.

Retirement has arrived at last

Well it has finally arrived and I find myself no longer working. Its really strange for the last 44 years I have had a daily purpose now I have to decide what I am going to do - really scary -but I am getting used to it. Jobs round the house are getting done and I am starting to plan our first trip away starting next April. Its off to Llangollen a long slow way over 3 months cannot wait. In the meantime its time to draw up a list of all the things that need doing on BB the first is to get the toilet holding tank gauge working again something I am not looking forward to.
