Tis A Bit Blowy

Recommended Posts

Polishing day today, compounding and polishing the hull on little Tropez.

The gusts of wind down at Acle at the moment are incredible, can feel the boat almost lifting off it's supports!

Rivers are lovely and quiet though and I've finished the port side. So should be home for tea :default_icon_e_smile:

A day boat been built by Richardsons at Stalham has been blown off its stands and is now laying on its side.

Very blowy down here in East Dorsetr yesterday, though a bit easier today. Now we can hear it pouring with rain. Bloody weather must get better soon, i have`nt ridden the cup for weeks.

The lift out for EllieKnight down on the upper medway was canceled today,  the river is in flood and rising and the wind was blowing a gale,  never a good combination. Might try Monday if the flow eases but more likely next saturday.

The wind has gone today replaced by rain.

Some pictures of the day boat. A few gel coat repairs and it will be as good as new.

I  was here when this happened. Heard s crash looked round to see it coming to rest. Rang Clive immediately and sent him some photos. It’ll all be sorted tomorrow. 

Took ‘B.A out to Barton yesterday about 1600, wind was very much reduced. Today lots of rain but no wind - apart from the sprouts I had yesterday
