I’ve been in New Zealand since 2010, firstly in South Island, and since 2012 in Northland, a beautiful and varied cruising ground. In 2015, I started building a new boat better suited to my requirements than “Fantail”, to see me through my dotage. After over 5 years’ solid work, “FanShi” was launched. She’s my perfect boat, worth all the effort I put in to her. While we could go offshore, I find I’m very happy here – for the moment. Maybe my blog should now be called “Pottering with Annie Hill”!
