I have been re-jigging the website to make it more logical
so I have rejigged KTL 1 and KTL 2 so that they are all in good shape and proper order and I came across two films that were not even on this website – bloomin stoopid
Dylan, these films of the Alde must be among your best. Excellent photography and editing; and the soundtrack, both voice-over and music, capture the winter landscape so well (no pun intended).
So finally, after months of meaning to, I’ve been so moved (used to sail out of the Blackwater – very nostalgic for me) that I have actually made a contribution – in my wife’s name ‘cos it’s her name on the Paypal account.
Thanks for the experience, you obviously enjoyed it all but there are many of us who will probably never do it ourselves because “it’s too cold”, “the boat’s laid up for the winter” etc.Cheers.
Cheers Dave,very nice of you to say so. Good move on the CentaurI fear I might have made my next one a bit more expensive than it needed to beThe last few days on the little boat have hammered it home a bit.So….
if anyone knows of a centaur with a knackered engine but good interior, I am your man
Lovely, lovely, lovely. Thank you. Medicine for my soul.I must dig out my old DVD’s of the early seasons…
the dvds are lower definition and might look a bit ropey now compared to the downloads
I do hope you soul is not in need of too much medicine at the moment
it is spring – the boats are afloat – the breeze is tickling the leaves
Absolutely Fantastic D!! Superb photography! Looking forward to heading up to the Alde possibly back end of next year, to much to explore in the blackwater, I really hope to sail a bit next winter. Your films are more of a inspiration than possibly you think D!They seem to capture feeling that I am sure, most of us on here are pulled towards, even us young MOB’s as I have now been called………..Seems like your getting the call of the centaur!Kind Regards
Great to see those again – at least I’m certain I’ve seen the bit about the Iken seal. Hope your trip to the frozen north doesn’t seize you up.I should have asked this years ago – why did you have those blocks and all that fiddly string on the clew of your jib on The Slug? It must have crashed around awfully – all you need is a bowline.CheersG
two part purchase – as used on broads boats and old smacks
no winches on the slug and a masthead genoa so it was quite big – it needed a lot of strength to get any tension in it
on calm days I went back to a single sheet on each side
