    Hi Pete,
    Yes I've noticed some peculiar anomalies with the vids, photos, and Blogs as well I thinkπŸ€”
    The so called Avatar is the pic / photo you added to your Profile, instead of the grey ghost!
    Can be one of your boats, or your boating lake (as in your case) instead of an ugly phizog like mine😁
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    WO Rooky, You'll get there soon enoughπŸ‘
    Capturing a few ships for your Harbour would put you in good favour with the Admiralty.
    To that end you are herewith Granted a Privateers Charter.
    Just don't tangle with the Munich Fleet - we'd blow you outta the waterπŸ˜€
    😎
    PS just noticed that Sub Lt Dodgy is creeping about somewhere - you know he's been detached to Black Ops - so keep your head down Warrant.

    Thank you Rooky, I'm sure we will be congratulating you quite soon. I still don't like having to wait until I'm 86 to become a middy. I've never met one over about 22.

    There were some excellent books written about round the world voyaging, some single handed, in the years post Slocum. The voyage of the Tilikum by Captain Voss comes to mind then there were Alain Gerbault's two books about his voyages in Firecrest. The first was 'Fight of the Firecrest' about his initial voyage across the Atlantic from the South of France. I cannot remember the title of the second but that was mainly about the South Pacific. Sailing all Seas in the Idle Hour, believe that was by Dwight D Long, was another. Sit and think for a while and they'll come back to me. It's years since I read any of them.

    Hi Nerys - think you are right about the spelling - years afterwards Harry sent Dad a signed copy of his book with greetings to his old friend. Unfortunately an unscrupulous book dealer filched it from my collection - although I have managed to find a paperback copy its not the same thing - Harrys boat was a Tom Day designed ketch - called it Islander. An interesting read about a different world.

    Harry Pigeon, if I remember correctly, the second person to sail around the world after Joshua Slocum. Boat called Islander. I read the book many years ago.
    Through my father, I learnt about the sea and ships. He taught me all the basic knots and splices by the time I was six. I learnt semaphore and morse. Favoured reading was 'Manual of Seamanship Vols. 1 and 2) when I wasn't reading 'Swallows and Amazons'. But my passion was for small sailing boats and Thames Sailing Barges were the pinnacle.
