This week we continued our quest to learn and gather quotes for the big boat jobs. We also bought a car, moved to a new Airbnb apartment (AGAIN), tinkered about on Odin and barbecued with our new island neighbours.
My friend Jamie reminded me of an old saying: “the two happiest days of a boat owner’s life are the day they buy a boat and the day they sell it”.
On Friday the 19th of August at precisely 17:25 in the year 2016, the stars aligned and we agreed to buy our first ever houseboat, Odin. It was an overwhelmingly happy moment, the culmination of 3 years dreaming and searching.
