Crossbow – bit of an oddity

I have been clearing things out while preparing the site for pay as you go on the proper films

I have been removing stuff from my Amazon server where the odd video file has resided for almost a decade.

I came across this little section which I filmed when back on the broads

Rather interesting I think


This is about Sailing around Britain.

    Yes, it is … and around 0.46 there is a Hunter’s boat moored up. T

    Nice little day boat that. Dunno if its any good, but saw this on ebay, and thought of you. Hope the summer has gone well on sailing. Not been anywhere in my kayak, yet, but I’ve a week off soon

    While no doubt a nice boat, it lacks the flexibility of a two mast rig for the old guy doing his single handed sailing. I guess that we shall all have to be very patient until the “moment” arrives. Btw where is he?

        I drove 1000 KM to meet a Frenchman who was advertising a Fisher 25 that had not moved for a decade. The boat was okay – the Frenchman was not. he was a bit of a scoundrel.

        It is a terrible story…. now home after another 1000 km. I will write the story up for you chaps – once I have been out on the Deben in the dinghy and put it all into context

          I thought there may have been an ulterior motive for the French trip….. and during the first week of Wimbledon Fortnight as well !

          Your powers of persuasion are beyond question Mr Winter !
