    If I remember correctly they didn't guarantee your embarking or disembarking points, it all depended on what work they were called upon to do and where they ended up at the end of the previous cruise.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Mark, I knew she was fitted out to a high standard. Trinity House were offering cruises on her at one time, possibly still are, to see the work of that organisation and I contemplated booking one, but went on the Norwegian Coastal Voyage instead, telling myself that I would do the Trinity House Cruise another time. Of course, I never did. I know they said that you could be in the cabin that was also used by the Duke of Edinburgh so the standard must have been high. Think a week with them seeing how they maintained buoys etc could have been very interesting. Wish I'd done it now.

    Cheers, Nerys.

    Hi Nery's ,yes it was, when we were building her the rumour went round the yard that she was to replace the royal yacht Britannia, the finish and fittings were opulent to say the least with marble panels for the bathrooms brought from Italy, she also had beautiful wooden decks .

    Hi Mark, would that be the Trinity House Patricia?

    Again off the subject slightly ,when I was an apprentice at Henry Robbs we were building the MV Patricia when one of the journeymen said he'd got his hands on a load of paint( name withheld to protect the guilty )"did anyone want some"? So going home with a couple of gallons decided to paint the garage doors whilst the oldies were away on holiday when they came back a week later the door still wasn't dry (dad went mental)so much for using my initiative ,one of the other apprentices had decided to paint all his mums skirting boards and again still not dry, I don't think we were the only ones with the problem ,the paint turned out to be anti fouling and had to be mixed with an activator and that's why there were loads lying around the painter foreman kept the activator in his office and only issued it when needed . If it's too Good to be true then it is ,and not worth spending every night for a week after work trying to wash off sticky paint 😭.
    Cheers MarkyπŸ‘

    Definitely off the subject - we used to get distemper in square 4 gallon tins in my youth in what is now Zimbabwe (everything came in them - early settlers made furniture from the packing cases which held 4 tins of paraffin). Grandfather had just finished painting our garage inside with the leftovers of various colours - very bright - when the decision was made to use a large Ronden Flash Bomb in the one remaining full tin of white. The result was spectacular if you like polka dots - and one had to remove ones 9 year old body well out of the reach of some very irate adults!

    Slightly off the subject but relevant - tonal effect by scale . "Authentic" colours are marketed - but often look too dark overall - because although they match the "Real" colour exactly - they do not allow for scale effect at all. Simple to apply - take a 1/72 scale model at 1 ft - the colour should be what you get from looking at the real thing at 72 feet away - at one yard 72 yards applies - colour fades with distance which is why far away mountains fade to a pale blue - they are virtually colourless - blue tone is from the air - so looking at a landscape the human eye / brain uses that as depth perception together with the slightly different angles from each eye - that would appear to be the main reason a model in "Authentic" colours looks too dark.

    Oh no - the mention of distemper! Had a terrible job removing it from the bedroom ceilings in our house. Soaking with warm water time after time. Some have sealed it rather than remove, but it's just as difficult so might as well put on a disposable overall and remove. The bedroom ceilings are coved which made the job even more difficult.
    If anyone still wishes to use distemper, it is available from specialist paint supplier Lakeland Paints and probably others.
