    Hi Martin,

    I do hope your optimism is realised, I don't think I've had a sail this year. The bad weather seems to be never ending. Perhaps, says she, crossing everything we'll have a good summer.

    At least, one thing, March is coming in like a lion, let's hope it remembers the old adage and goes out like a lamb.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Nerys,

    With the constant stream of weekend gales we are having, Ken, you'll probably catch me up. Jorge this weekend, what will it be next week. Will I ever sail her?

    Cheers, Nerys

    Pleased you liked the photos Doug, hopefully we'll get some of her sailing one of these days. You'll be disappointed to hear that I didn't dress the sails. the fabric, polycotton comes in a huge variety of colours at a little over ยฃ2 a metre.
    We haven't had as much rain as further East in the valleys above Cardiff, There's been a big drop in temperature but as yet no snow. Actually, we get very little, we've lived here six years and have never seen snow lay for more than a couple of hours and it's always been very light. It can be on the mountains a mile or two away to the East, but we just don't get it.

    My sister, in the Jura, has been complaining of very high winds and has lost three very tall trees in the last week or so.

    I continue to work on my crash tender, but all the time, am planning the next Thames Barge.

    Regards to you and Gisela.

    Cheers, Nerys

    How nice to hear from somebody who sailed from Hollowshore. I did for many years so we possibly knew each other and have a lot of mutual acquaintances.. The tales of Lawrie's wife Eileen are of course legendary but I don't think we ought to mention them on here. The Shipwright's was still a great place after Lawrie, retired and Jack and Kay took over, but I went there a few weeks ago, first time in 30 or more years, and it just wasn't the same. Lacks all the character and friendliness of times gone by. Felt it had lost all it's magic.

    All the best, Nerys

    Nerys, sorry to add to your thread on barges under "Fittings for Areokits RAF tender"...โ€ฆ but hey ho. As a teenager I sailed out of Hollowshore ( at Jn of Faversham and Oare creeks) in the 1960s' with my Dad and saw many of Lawry Testers "projects" come and go including "Orinoco" after he had apparently raised from the seabed and then rebuilt/refitted her at his yard/slipway there. She still sails out of Ironwharf at Faversham now. Took my first pints of cider then the local ale " sludge" drawn from the cask at the "Shipwrights Arms" and staggered to my bunk when too many waiting for the tide.....which always seemed to be at 3 am !! Lawrys' wife was the fiesty barmaid back then ! Of course Lawry sadly passed I think not making it back to another one of his barges " Hydrogen" which he had finally as a live aboard in Faversham Creek. Happy days...โ€ฆ Peter.
