Great pics Nick. Your liver must be needing a weekend off now.
Did you get the PM from TOP about your bunnet?

My liver needs a month off . . . I think anyone considering a SB cruise followed by the Chents the next weekend should have to present the organisers with a Class A medical and an indemnity chit.

Will PM you the address for the bunnet

Mine are all to my usual uniformly dull standard. This is the best of a bad bunch.

This might have made a tricky whereisit if we hadn't all been there last weekend.

Another great cruise though - mutiny notwithstanding. :)

It concerns me that Silkie is depicted as a token of early christianity. I think that is rather rude and disprespectful.

I must apologise for the quality and content of the sound track, but hearing the dishes being washed does add somewhat to the drama of the occasion. I am presently awaiting a review from the arts correspondent of the Blackpool and Fylde Literary Review.

Hmm
There is a lot to be said for having a muffler, a steady hand and some human interest aspect. Really - watching a few boats reaching along with a bit of land behind gets a bit samey after a while.
Are you familiar with the art of dubbing?
Suggest you research the history of the locality and then weave a story in - a kilt, a good looking woman and a bit of nudity would also spark it up a tad.

You want to see Shard naked?

A strange request but I believe Lady Stormrider may be able to let you have some polaroids as long as you don't mind the suggestive grin and the rippling torso smeared with porridge.

Is that the same stuff I used to put on my football boots in the days of my yoof?

I think it was called Dubbing, or something very similar, though just why you would want to clart that stuff on a filum of sailing boats escapes me.
