« on: April 28, 2014, 07:27:06 AM »

Hello,


New member signing in.

I live in Caister-on-Sea in Norfolk,UK.

I've just started building my first boat.

Sealight Puffer, from Mountfleet.

I retired early and started this new hobby.

Had a trial sail, on the Waterways, in Great Yarmouth yesterday. Went well, at least it didn't sink.

Lots to learn,

TOF

I use my Koi pond for testing.

I sail at the Waterways in Great Yarmouth.

Hi TOF and welcome.


I'm new here also, but have been made most welcome so I'm sure you will enjoy the forum. :-))


I bought a cheap paddling pool for testing as I'm not too sure my fish would thank me for spinning propellers in their territory and Turing the pond into a whirlpool. :}

Fish are used to being disturbed, waterfall, airation, and a pair of visiting mallard ducks.

The puffer I'm building is flat bottomed so propeller is out of the way.

Pond weed is another matter...
