Hi All

Well Ive been at sea for the last 3 weeks and I thought this post may have progressed a little whilst I was away.

Never mind!!

We saw this old girl coming down channel in a bit of a blow (The wind was Strong but no sea) so we went out for a look any ideas on her name and some history would help. A couple of tall ships went down the Channel so there must have been a meeting somewhere !!

All I can say is that it is a really good looking boat.

Hi everyone

Been at work for a while

There hasnt been many unusual boats going up or down the English Channel recently

Also been concentrating on our little boat after being out of the water since October have enclosed a before and after picture I think youll agree that it is a slight improvement

Please let me know what you think?

I keep going down to look at her (my old age I think)

We are launching her on Saturday morning if it all goes well I send some more piccies. If it doesn't Ill pprobably go very quiet!

Speak to you soon

Steve

Hi Steve.

Welcome back.

I believe these to be the German ships Oste and Oker, but I could be wrong ............ again

Cheers // Stephen

I am still working on this carrier from June 3rd!!! Is it the U.S.S. Bonhomme Richard? One of the WASP class of amphibeous asault ships.

Hi StephenYes I think your right They were in Dover last week.I believe they are either auxillary or training ships The masts are very tall and looking at them from outside the harbour it looked like a square rigger alongside probably my blurred vision Steve

Denmark. Nice place - lousy weather this year. But I got a lot of jobs done on the boat so it was not wasted time and we had a few good sails. Two days of fine weather and many more of rain and wind much to my oldest son's discomfort - say no more! My younget boy also managed to catch a big garfish so he was well satisfied too.

The summary - good but could have been better.

Cheers // Stephen

I have always fancied sailing to Denmark and also Norway now the boats finished it may be a possibility but I also have a 91 year old Father in Law living with us and that makes going sailing for more than a day very awkward.

Maybe one day I hope that I'm not too old by then!!
