Tim Zim bought a boat on a whim and is blogging about his restoration project. This is one of the more interesting blogs I have seen. There is something about his enthusiasm in this project that is infectious.
Some would say that is a pretty cool thing to do when they hear about it whereas others nod wisely then try to slip away from the raving loony as quickly as possible.
The thing is until I bought the boat I have never actually driven any kind of boat at all, which is fine except that my boat is a 27 metre (90 ft) steel ex fishing trawler, built tough for fishing in the North Sea.
