Judging by the poems posted by Rover Crew, I think it could be a good light hearted read.
Yes Auzzee, that would fit - dad certainly took the 'Practical Boat Owner' magazine during the 60's, so the book I mentioned might have had something to do with that. I shall look for the one you mention. Certainly, as I said before, these two poems hold a special meaning for me, and I have always wondered if there was the 3rd one perhaps called 'Old Age' or something like.
Having said that the one entitled 'Youth' reminded me of dads first boat, I should point out that it wasn't a total home made thing - though he did (I am told- cos I was too young to remember) buy it with a hole in the bottom! (can you imagine my mums reaction?)
She (the boat) was a dear ol' thing though and thought to have been one of the little ships at Dunkirk, though if she was she was never listed under the name we knew her by. I cried buckets when she finally had to go, and dad and his chum took her out to the saltings and punched a hole in her.
But I digress and am going off the subject of the thread. My apologies. Its nice to ramble down memory lane sometimes though.
cheers for now.

Default Yup!

A good day involves sailing.
A really good day involves friends.
And how perfectly pleasant it is to develop a new friendship.
So I have two of the three today and now need to heed this little gem.........

“Go ahead back up”
Approach the dock at the speed you can afford to hit it.
