Marcelle at Beale Park
You know that nagging feeling at the back of your mind... "I've seen that boat before..." ? Well, I didn't have that feeling at all when I saw Alan Staley's lovely boat Marcelle at Beale Park. But I featured it in  this blog back in 2009 when I saw her at S...

Playing at Lifeboats
I had a lot of fun yesterday at the Hayling Island 999 Day, an event to show the emergency services off to the public. Langstone Cutters helped re-enact the rescue in 1865 of three of the crew of the schooner Ocean, which had run aground off Hayling beach. ...

Green Park SW1
I suspect that most of the tourists heading towards Buckingham Palace from Green Park station assume that the Diana fountain is a memorial to the notorious princess of the same name, but in fact she was created in 1954 by Estcourt "Jim" Clark. Known as Dian...

Atlantic Beach Boat at Beale Park
At the Southampton Boat Show last year I met Colin Evans , who was showing a model of his Atlantic Beachboat, a four-oared lug ketch for coastal rowing and sailing. At Beale, I saw the real thing! She really looks the business, with a long (28ft) hull but w...

Algonquin at Beale Park
Peeping out from between a couple of tents in the upper reaches of the show was Algonquin, built in larch on oak in Canada in about 1925 as a tender to a coastguard boat on the Great Lakes. At that time she must have seen action against the rum runners smug...
