Steve and Julie's 'Eider' a 55ft Branson Design, South Holland Marine hull fitted out by Steve and Julie. Launched Thursday 3rd Nov 2005, they shot off down river with the flow towards their mooring, but after a short distance, with everything going well, decided to turn round again and go upstream for a few miles for an extended maiden voyage. Now on a lovely mooring by the side of the river Nene with a view over a water meadow. They are going to spend the winter fitting out the wheel house and finish wiring up various bargy things like anchor windlass and bow thruster, moving on board a couple of weeks after launch.
