We're running out of daylight here!!!

We're running out of daylight here!!!

time and tide wait for no man, nearly ran out of one before we had enough of the other, going up on the New Quay slip as darkness falls, about 10pm on a wed. night, thats service for you. the shadowy figures on the bow are Sir Sweltered and self, having a "are you sure we're far enough on the trolley?" conversation.

    As I recall, there was only an inch of keel on the back bogey!

    I remember the first boat up charlies slip, and predicted that a boat would fall off it, I was right to be worried.....

    i have a picture of that unfortunate incident, wouldn't want to upset some poor sowel with a pic of their pride and joy lying on its side, well naw really but it was heeling over a good bit, couldn't tell you the name of the boat or when it happened or why i took the pic, or even if i did take the pic or just found it in a box i borrowed from davaar, blue boat, white shelter is all i remember, who, when? no idea. can't remember that sort of thing but i can get a brand new washing machine when the other one breaks down a week before the guarantee runs out, i do good phone!!!!

    she sunk last year
    Aye the shade of blue, that the Nostaw was painted, was very familiar to those who'd seen the Jasmine ;)
