    Yep , can't think of a better reason for being grounded , my collie is 13 and I have to think very hard to remember her not being here.
    Three weeks is but just a blink of an eye in the greater scene of life. My English teacher would have been proud of that one:D.
    Enjoy the pup , mine is still called the pup.

    An Avatar containing a sailboat and a Fairline Bear living in your motorhome.

    I am sure a psychologist would have a field day..... :)

    Well a psychologist might wonder why you knew it was an American 'sailboat' and not a British 'sailing boat'

    It doesn't seem to go with any of the previous comments.

    Well spotted, my Fairline teddy!
    Came with our Targa 34, (now sold). Bought the yacht, neither British or American, ooh la la its French:)

    I also need psychological help as the dog is doing my head in!

    Have you any boating background since you spotted a Fairline Teddy?

    Lovely Pup, think I recognise the fabric of the moho is it an AT by any chance, sat in a few before eventually buying German.
    I helped build a Birchwood 33 motor yacht,from the hull up, when I was an apprentice, crewed it with my boss, who later traded it for a Fisher 38 Trawler Yacht. Missed them ever since I moved on.
    As you are grounded for a few weeks, and the weather is crap, thought I might help you discover some journeys/adventures to places that I can only dream of, and a boat that has to be the pinnacle in terms of a "Practical" sea going motor yacht, I dont think I could afford the diesel, let alone a down payment on this beauty.
    If you subscribe to Motor Boat & Yachting, you may already know about this very successful guy,(Motor Yacht Manufacturer) if not welcome to Tony Fleming and his yacht "Venture"
    Warning: very addictive video Blogger.Hope you enjoy.

    Had quite a bit of boating experience through ownership of both sail and power and through time working in the industry. (y)

    I guess it results from the habit of just using Sail or Motor when taking/giving details.

    Should we now consider the correct British term to be 'Motoring Boat'? :D
