Close huh?Okay, obviously it is not anyone from the Doors as the boat is flying the red ensign so British. I suppose it could be one of the two remaining Beatles but I would imagine that Paul would have a much smarter boat than this. Ringo on the other hand....?

But, it could be one of the survivors of the Who, Pete Townsend and Roger Daltry. I know Pete Townsed had a boat called Zephyr but I don't think this is the one.

Nope. I just don't know.

Well, okay. Obviously Paul McCarteny. I know he had a boat but I believed it was called LINDA and I never had Paul pegged as a Dicken's fan.

Well I suppose that boat would look better called Barnaby Rudge rather than Heather !

Spot on

Paul McCartney

Barnaby Rudge is berthed down in the South Coast quite near his farm.

Its quite nice to know that it doesnt matter how much money you have, getting out on the water is the most important thing

But when you have a Super yacht and you cant remember where you left it you better remember this website

I wont be around much for the next 2 weeks so please keep them question's coming.



Cheers

Steve

Hey Auzzee,

Did you spot this in Darwin recently? It may have been unobrusive.

I didn't know there was a yacht equivalent to trainspotting.

Hi,

Yes, this 'little' beaut was here about a month back. When I saw it in the harbour, I took a shot of it, but unfortunately I did not have the long lens with me.....m_DSC_0334.JPG

Beautiful boat.

David.

Stephen,

I will have a go at your so called easy question :- The Gotheburg III ( My spelling is probably way out !) stopping for stores on her way to the Far East. ??????

Absolutely right Richard.

I happened to be in Cape Town when she arrived there. She is now lying in Gothenburg and there seems to be some question about what her future will be.

Aye

Stephen

Is it the German sail training ship "Alexander von Humboldt"?

There can't be too many ships with green sails.
