A later Happy New Year to you all

I have not forgotten my blog.. but just a bit too busy to remember to update it regularly, so I do hope you all have a good new year.

I had a good start to my year and in the January Car sales, treated myself to a new, second hand car. I was looking for something that would be useful to me as well as getting me from A to B. My first thoughts were for a New Citreon Beringo Multispace vehilce. I thought it would be good for camping and also have enough power to tow the boat around, however when I actually sat in the driver seat of one.. I realised it was a bit too small for my liking.

So I went to the other extreme and bought myself a 4 wheel drive SUV. It should be ideal to get the boat up and down even the steepest slipways ..and across the firmer shores. Its a Peugeot 4007 and is a true delight to drive, especially in the recent snow.

Its what has been keeping me so busy lately..Im working hard to afford the fuel bills, but here she is in all her glory. I cant wait until the warmer weather to get the boat going again..launch and retrieval should be much easier now.

Nice looking car. I have friends that back a boat in each summer Scotland wide and its always better with a powerful engine and grip to get back up the slipways.
Best wishes for 2013 Donny.

Sweet ride! I hope it is all that you hope that it is, especially when you are able to use it with your boat. I bet it will come in quite handy!

Have a wonderful 2013!
I look forward to hearing about more adventures.

Thanks for your kind comments everyone.

The car is going great and handles the snow very well. Im making some alterations to the inside so I can sleep in it on my summer journeys and I will post about the alterations soon.
