Re: As I Write

We looked at buying an apartment in Val D’Isere when I was spending most of the winters there but it simply wasn’t worth it - even doing average 22 weeks a season. There is a lot of cost involved all year round that isn’t apparent. There are also loads of places for sale from people who hadn’t done ...

Re: Moody Self Isolating?

Must be a Moody thing - there is someone living aboard a Moody here. Must be purgatory being stuck in a marina after a miserable winter with the good weather we’re having.

Re: As I Write

Just a couple of hundred meters from my old office - at the bottom of Kongensgade, the walking street.

Just where I came off my bike one winters morning on the way to work..woke up on the cobbles with 3 concerned Danes leaning over me :lol:

Re: How to get launched?

Ardfern Boat Yard is now closed.

Re: How to get launched?

We got launched last week after some engine work (some...)

We do not want to keep the boat in the marina.

We just got the mooring serviced.

We do not want to move the boat in the current situation.

We certainly do not want to be paying for two moorings.

Re: How to get launched?

The yards seem busy with folk working on their boats, dunno where they are all staying or what they are going to do since the pubs and eateries are all closed. Wish they’d all eff off home TBH. The thing is - we are all going to get it sooner or later. Some of us really badly, most of us not so bad....

Is the yard shut? Seems strange they are not launching.

Luckily we got in the water yesterday...
