New berth

New berthHere is Lady Jane in her new, temporary, berth.

On Thursday we moved the old girl round from her mooring on the River Itchen and across Southampton Water to Hythe, where she is now alongside at Hythe Marine Park.

My special thanks to both John, skipper, and Duncan, first mate, who made it all look easy.

We were going to move Lady Jane on Friday, but the weather forecast was for much friskier winds than seemed sensible, so we jumped on Thursday instead.

The plan is to lift her out the water on the slip they have here later on this week, weather depending of course.

Hythe Marine Park is vast, and Lady Jane is completely dwarfed by her new surroundings.

I'm loving the new spot we are in.

    Tim,
    Is there any way to have the other url for the webcam update automatically ?

    I think I got most of the controls figured out but not auto update. :))

    It was fun watching for movement and figuring out what was happening including the trip over. :))

    Thank You

  2. This is all very exciting , Tim!
    There's probably too much work planned to list but it will be exciting to read about it.
    Now might be a good time to get that mast painted and windlass moved....
