I have been around boats all my life having boats talked about breakfast, dinner and tea everyday while growing up. During my career I have built canal boats, worked in a joinery workshop making doors and windows.
In my spare time I have refurbished several types of sailing dinghies. I started sailing Albacore’s and went on to sail several other dinghies, then returned to Albacore’s and sail as much as work allows. During this time I also became an RYA senior sailing instructor and powerboat instructor.
I have now fitted out 14 Ovington Albacores, two with wooden decks and one with wooden buoyancy tanks and decks. Several other boats have been refurbished with new woodwork, painting and varnishing.
I have been sailing all the time since I married Paul and have been employed making any parts that require sewing i.e. toe straps, sail bags, etc.Also general dogs body always having to give Paul a lift so he can turn boats.
