Looks to be a good replacement once you have got all the covers and accommodation sorted. Are you going to leave the pot winch and tipper?

Pots

Mon, 2012-01-16 16:30

Have heard that a few charter boats down south pull their own amateur cray pots while on a charter and cook them up for a feed while camping overnight.

 Its a Millman build or just painted up as one

I know this is slightly off the subject but are you just going to change the name or do you have a ritual you will go through to change the name on the boat.. I have always been told bad luck to change a name so i havent changed my boats name but want to. just a case of not wanting so called bad luck?
