'Chortle' is our new family sailing boat. She is a Sadler 29, with bilge keels, twin skinned and polyurethane filled hull (apparently unsinkable) and was built in 1984. She has received considerable amounts of TLC this summer, a refurbishment infact from dad and we now begin our adventures.

Well, apart from all the instruments, new light fittings and bulbs the wiring is connected. From experience i dont believe for min it is perfect, so far the panel lights come on, testing will start in the morning, oh i nearly forgot the navigation instruments, vhf and fm radio are yet to be wired. My little assistance were as excited as i was to see the lights in the d. panel come on. Small steps. Green comes on with engine isolator and red with house hopefully it will remind us to switch it off when not needed!
