Recently I sold a Sea Otter Narrow boat to a customer (James Smith) who is a retired dentist. The boat was surveyed and there were a couple of minor issues to be resolved prior to completion. James had said he would be away for a few weeks so there was no rush to get the work done.

Sometimes, I come to the conclusion you just get too many emails. Anyhow, whilst poring through Friday’s delivery of the odd two or three hundred emails in my inbox, I noticed one titled Rib Raid; nothing to do with technical redundancy on servers. When I opened it, I found it was an invitation to go and join the guys at Boatshed, Hamble for a brief soiree around the Solent.
