I decided to build a new yacht, larger than Capsicum and in steel with a wooden deck and "Deck Salon". One of the reasons to use steel is that Adam has offered to help and he is a welder. I will update the web site as jj-boat progresses, why the name? I named it after my grandchildren's first name initials
joshua, joseph, ben, oliver and thomas.
The a could stand for adam or andras. They have been a tremendous help to me.
My Mum and Adam (he was there in Sprit) launched jj.boat on the 12 May 2005 at Lake Side Marina,Poole

A record (Log) of jj.boat's travels
Log of trip of the Irish Girl's Date Time Log Trip Log Links April Almerimar meet a couple of Irish girls in a bar. We talked and they asked for a sail, I exchanged a sail for them doing my washing. One had a car so they took me to Mercia for the day. Saw Hendrik in Mar Menor. They also help me do things I could not normally do. We had a couple of sails, went out 7 or 8 miles in strong winds one day and calm winds another day. Swam off of jj. Meet them a few times for a drink. I have to thank them for doing the washing and folding and rolling it so neatly. One is and OT and the other has a company, selling Spanish Holiday Homes in Ireland. I could not normally, travel to other towns to have my jackets cleaned, to send mail and to see inland places. It made a pleasant change, thanks girls
