We have just swapped a keel for four wheels! So we don't have to worry about wind and tide anymore. Although we almost got blown away from a clifftop CL over the Christmas hols. Just one question, what is the best anchor to take.
Looking forward to your replies. Alan n Lis

It ain't your wallet that's for sure, owning a M/H can sometimes lighten it considerably.

Welcome anyway! Tiz a good place to be, this 'ere M/H Fun thingee. Information? tiz there, no matter what subject, don't have to be M/Hs
Summin to make you smile, laugh? @Old Mo jokes tiz for you too. Banter? Aw well ! 'spect you find that out as you go along, tiz harmless.
Most of all , if you are in trouble, there is always a Funster to help you over it

Well maybe not Earthquakes, Avalances, Volcano eruptions, Tsunamis, WW3, Armaggon!, and flatulence!

Welcome.

I also changed over from sail to a MH, but had both for a while.

I had a Westerly 33 ketch, built in 1978 and I bought it in 1987, sailed it to Greece and used it in the Aegean for about 4,000 NM and 70 islands for 30 years.

Needed to see inland Europe - boat would not get up Pyrenees even with following wind. - so bought MH 8 years ago.

I kept the boat near Poros, but with our limited time away it became impossible to keep both going, so I passed the boat over last year to a friend who is an excellent engineer and has run boat maintenance companies, so she is in good hands; I may go to help to crew her back to UK later this year.

Motorhomes are easier to run and maintain and one can get to places quicker.

I still miss being anchored in a safe bay and waking up in the morning and diving into crystal clear water. but do not miss worrying about dragging and other hard bits.

But the MH on a Pyrenees mountain also has some great moments.

What MH have you got?

Geoff
