Hi Mark, good to hear from you. Not really had the time for fundraising and anyway we have just been gifted use of a nice Hanse 54. Still very keen to get an Islander as I am certain they would do a great job. Is your boat finished and sailing?

No where near it! The Pahi was shelved for a long time while we tried to get the house sorted out but it's back on track now. Upon completion we were thinking on re-locating to New Zealand for six months of the year at least Boat building and repair during the Irish winters has become an absolute Joke

Sounds like a good plan. There is plenty of work during the NZ summer from all the overseas boats. A good boatbuilder working from a van (I.e. low overheads) can compete well in Whangarei. Feel free to talk to me about this, I have had a lot to do with the marine industry here.

Sounds great! Van? I'll be working off of the back of my boat. By that time I should have finished my exams at Lloyd's Maritime Academy so I'll have a Surveyors Certificate too. Could do new builds, repairs and surveys, maybe a bit of chartering.
