This sounds right up my street. What sort of costs are we looking at?

I think I'd like a nice oil painting, preferably done in the manner of a renowned, but, sadly deceased, west coast artist, of Mme Shard, Minnie Shard, the Shardlets, and the Shardlings, on board a luxury yacht in the south of France. Can anyone oblige? I believe Silkie is a bit of a painter.

I believe a short piece of damp string is more likely to be a bit of a painter.

That reminds me of the occasion a couple of decades ago when we took an artist friend out for a sail on the Forth. (She was a quite accomplished sailing artist and could lie on a lee cockpit seat daubing away merrily. Going about would cause some entertainment though.)
Back to the plot. This time, she forgot to bring any brushes. As luck would have it, only a few weeks before, PBO had described using a rope's end as a disposable paint brush for small touch-up jobs and such. So I equipped Annie with something similar and that was that. Much painting was done.

Unfortunately we don't have the raw material, a watercolour. But this oil was done from it and now sits over the fireplace. It's looking south from the Forth towards Hillend.

This watercolour was a live painting (using brushes) of the ferry cottage at North Shian as we shot past on the tide.

Not a bit boaty, but this is my favourite of Annie's paintings

Sorry - but I had to type this comment and I fully expect to get keel-hauled by my skipper but...

Was the artist a POST-IMPRESSIONIST????

Are not 2 (possibly more) words missing from the end, as in "Yarh a lot of wasters" or similar?

More like "Yarrrrrr, prepare to repell boarders, Yarrrrr"

Or is it "prepare to be boarded" I forget?

You have to roll them r's

Oooh! Roll my Rrrr's? Skipper says I have an automatic one for reefing with a sacrificial strip.

I do roll a bit when I'm sent onto the foredeck and made to do boaty stuff under threat of 'The Cat'.

If you have shivering timbers you need to get that looked at professionally - have you had an osmosis test recently?
