Strenuous

Ex MFV StrenuousHere is the Strenuous.

She came by on Saturday, on her way to the public slip just opposite me.

I must say, although she looks somewhat of a project, her engine sounded fine. More than I can say for poor Lilagina next to me, who's engine no longer runs due to the ravages of time and the odd flooding down below.

The skipper of Strenuous, by himself, with some dextrous manoeuvring put her onto the public slip with no fuss.

As soon as the tide started going out, he was over the side giving her bottom a scrub down.

By Sunday she was back on her way up the river again.
