The only way to get a good crew, is to marry one

Eric Hiscock

That's what I did!

Teaching full time all week, Friday was always a mad dash down the A4 to catch the tide at Hayling Island to spend the weekend on and around the Isle of Wight; first in a series of Sealine motor boats and then in our renovated Dutch Motor Sailor "schuimkop", which means bow wave in Dutch.

Sam our son made his first trip aboard aged 6 weeks and he has also got the boat bug. He's training in the superyacht industry.

So having made one major life style change, 16 years ago when I sailed away from marking and timetables and lived aboard "schuimkop" for three years while we built our house here in Banyuls sur mer, it wasn't too much of a hardship to grab the chance of another new adventure.

Buying boatshedsudmed seemed like a natural progression. I live by the sea, I love being on and around boats, and I know the people, places and culture of this beautiful region pretty well.

To be able to make my living doing all the things I like best is pretty ideal I'd say.

So, along with Kevin, and of course Mickey the Jack Russell; "my crew" and I are thrilled to be part of the boatshed family and look forward to helping you buy or sell the boat of your dreams.

A bientôt!
