Well, it's got a tad warmer and dryer and thoughts of sailing return. A trip to the Sail Stornoway meeting the other evening kindled the feeling as well. Seems to be a lot going on this year what with the Port Authority 150 years celebrations and, the umpteenth running of the Coronation Sailing Cup - started in 1902. Might even have a go at that - if the weather is right, the sea not too wet and everything. And not forgetting the rowing club events either. We might just tag along when they gad off over to Portsoy and their festival in July.
The boatee is coming along nicely. I seem to have sealed the windows from rainwater - hopefully anyway. If so I'll put off replacing them if I can. The steering stick is joined up and just needs a final bolt to double secure it. The bilge keels have been primed and await the foul paint later. When we get back from a wee sailing trip on the Caledonian Canal sort of later.
In the meantime I took a little stroll round the terrible harbour that is Brevig Several fishing boats risk the place and there's a few sad looking yachts up on the hard. I snapped them up with my little film camera, developed the film and now wonder what they are!
And the fishing.....
