Tank Museum
Above is a picture of the front of the tank museum at Bovington, which I visited last week. Strangely, Patch did not seem inclined to join me in this particular adventure. I'm not sure why! Anyway, I've seen signs for the tank museum many times when travell...

Pottering around in Poole
We were pottering around Poole harbour a bit more on the weekend, this time up towards Wareham way. We had worked Arctic Rose some way up the Wareham channel, but a falling tide, depths shoaling and a keen desire to avoid going aground meant we did not make...

Living the dream
For the longest time, I've been talking about having a boat, floating about and having a laugh. Up until recently, much of this has been focused on the boating side of things, now it's time to move on. In September, we gave notice at our 'home' marina - whe...

New running rigging
The dirty ropes you can see in the picture is my old running rigging (sheets and halyards), which have been somewhat overdue for replacement, while the nice clean ropes at the top of the picture and in the foreground are the new ropes. It's only when I see ...
