Much though I love my boat, about which I have written extensively, she is an antisocial creature. She only really likes me. We have had unforgettable moments together, but once another person is introduced, she does not feel at ease. Two people make her panicky.
So I have acquired another boat – a sailing boat. She is called American 14.6. I take this to signify that she was born in America and is 14 and one half feet long.
I can go anywhere in this boat – China, Korea, the Keramas, Iejima. Oh Lord, I cannot wait. I can fill her with food, drink and tanks and go camping/diving on lost beaches on far-flung sub tropical islands. What’s more, I can go with other people as the new boat, who I think I will call Dileas, likes up to 5 people.
She has a trailer. This means I can drive her around the island and launch her in the most exotic locations. Oh Lord, I cannot wait.
Anyway it is Winter, windy and coldish so I will just have to wait. Here are some birds.
