Well, we have purchased our new dream boat, a 36' Southerly 110 built in 2006, and named 'Norman James' after the father of the original owner. We weren't sure about the name, but have got used to it now, so it looks as though it is here to stay. We have had a few 'shake down' cruises to Runswick bay and North as far as Eyemouth, and are now happy that there are no serious problems, with just a few additions / modifications that we want to do. 'Shimry' is up for sale, and still in her original berth at Hartlepool, just three slots along the pontoon from 'NJ'.
