Two boys and a boat

Boating has always been my life and as a youngster Cooper didn’t get much choice in his aquatic activity. As he goy older, despite my increasingly desperate attempts to keep him interested he drifted away with close to a hatred of life aboard.
We hence turned our attention to biking,touring and then independent riding at park’s.

I basically gave up any hope of having him join me and concentrated on sailing solo.

But suddenly, at the beginning of the year, Cooper discovered fishing! Suddenly I, and more importantly, the boat became relevant! Slowly and carefully when the weather was right we have been going further afield. A sail has not been raised and the voyaging has been altogether different however Coopers appreciation of the boat has been reinvigorated.
So much so that we have spent the past four days exploring the Great Sandy Straits, always with rod in hand having the time of our lives and always breaking down the myths and barriers of life aboard a boring old yacht!

Although I have left the camera behind I couldn’t break the habit totally and have subtly been snapping away on the iPhone trying to capture special moments
