Something different

Something differentArriving down at Fareham just on high tide, I was greeted with a view of something a little different to the norm across the way from Lady Jane.

Of course, I had to go for a closer look at this Landing craft. Apparently it has been on exercises this week.

Not a spot of rust in sight anywhere!

As it happened, I ran into Dave Hardy from Trafalger Yachts. A friend of mine, from the village I live in, has been on at me for a while to drop in and say hello and I've just never got round to it.

We soon got talking about paint and paint systems, as he is working on restoring a beautiful looking classic wooden boat. Dave is truly a mine of information and well understands my problems, as he apparently also has a steel hulled yacht somewhere in France.

That Dave, who works right opposite Lady Jane, is a friend of someone else in my village is another unreal co-incidence.
