Getting going

Getting goingI'd say the toughest part of the latest jaunt in Lady Jane was the getting going.

As all the vessels which were on the moorings had to go, we could not just leave our lines on the crane barge, as we had done the last few times we went places.

The lines up forward were the worst, as they had been underwater and the ends ere completely covered in mussels and other slimy seaweed stuff.

In the picture you see Ken wresting with the first of our stern lines, assisted by me. The picture was taken by Paul.

Note the hacksaw at Ken's foot there, just in case those knots didn't come undone!
