    Current Boats:
    currently - surfboard, 2 plastic canoes, a canvas kayak, and a coracle.
    Super Modified Heron, see posts.
    No big boats right now but always looking and dreaming.
    Boating since a baby. Outboard tinnies and sailing dinghies from birth, grandpa's sharpie from 2 - 4yo, large floating foam electric typewriter box (1960's) was my first 'boat' I owned. Sailed in an old rainbow dinghy a couple of times, Heron from 4 - 14yo, wooden canoe as a child, surfing long and short boards, and racing on a TS (22ft) Bonito occasionally from teenage till ~35yo. Had a Hartley 15ft jet boat with Holden 6 cyl 138 C.I. engine and Hamilton jet, raced mosquito catamaran 2 up, Heron, competition slalom kayak, Heron, windsurfer, Hartley TS 16, canvas canoe, Heron, slightly modified Heron with outboard motor well at stern, canvas coracle, plastic canoe, plastic kayak, massively modified Heron - ERO,
    next . . . Something small and light, eg. Princess 18, Hartley, etc.

    I don't know much about boats, but I like to try.
    Thought of making a ride in model HMS navy boat from a canoe hull and electric propulsion, eg. aircraft carrier with solar panels on deck. But would have to be about 40 feet long to fit inside usefully = too impractical. I envisaged the late 1970's CVA - 01 carrier design with a Churchill class sub as an outrigger so it doesn't flip. Would look really cool, but expensive and impractical. Currently waiting for my next crazy and impractical idea.
