A beautiful old lady

by Anne Barr
(Baltimore Ireland)

My boat is 100 years old.

I bought her last year, having worked and sailed on her 20 years ago which left me with very good memories.

She was rotting in the mud and I was in need of a home so....

She needs a lot of TLC to put it mildly but she mostly sound.

I am just getting the courage now to re-design her to my liking to get more head-room.

Hi Anne,
Hope all is well with you.

Good to see that you've taken on the old gal.

It would have been a great pity if she just fell apart.

I live on a boat myself these days and live a fairly peaceful life.

I'm teetotal vege non smoker but I've been in a bad state and its a wonder I didn't drown in the Thames or in my own tears, pour me!

Oops I mean poor me if you want to get in touch my email is cosmicdave@live.co.uk

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
