    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 Dave,
      very nice of you to say so. Good move on the Centaur
      I fear I might have made my next one a bit more expensive than it needed to be
      The last few days on the little boat have hammered it home a bit.

      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.

      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
