Jorida

Am I right in thinking that a forum member had a Larson with beige covers called Jorida?

I recently move across the bay to Brixham Marina and there is a Larson called Jorida just down the pontoon from me, I wondered if it was the same boat.

Hello Mr Sprocker.
Yes you are absolutely right, I used to own JORIDA, she is a Larson 240 Cabrio, I last kept her on the Hamble, however I sold her in March 2017 and the new owner took her down to Poole Harbour. She was up for sale again after only a few months with new canopy covers but otherwise untouched but I lost track after that.
If any photos came to hand I would love to see them!!
Kind Regards
Paul

Is that better?

Looks like Google Photos have followed Photobucket in not allowing hosting for forum images, so I've moved them to TinyPic,

Many thanks to Ian for letting me know.

Hi Stu,

The RIB is brilliant, I had totally forgotten how much fun they are, and being able to handle her on my own I 'm not reliant on having anyone to crew, so am out most weekends in all weathers.
Add to that the fact that I'm not spending all of my spare time maintaining and cleaning, it's a win win situation for me.

Thanks for the photos sprocker, good to see she is still going strong.
I have been on jury service so today was the first chance I have had to revisit the site.
