Well we decided some very considerable time ago now that after having had "Chalice" for a lot of years, that the time was right to start looking for a change for our main cruising boat.

|Simon Wain's "Northwich Remake" "Oberon" ("Sextans" following is an old boat).|
|"Oberon" is just about my favourite new build boat.|
Don't ask us why, it's a personal thing, I guess, but somehow the replicas and remakes, although they capture the lines of the original perfectly, simply don't give quite the same buzz, (to us), as an original, (warts and all).

|"Thea" is rare example of a shortened converted boat - not for sale, though!|
