Charlie's Ark

Seven years ago (on the day my youngest grandson was born) I took, then showed, some shots of this red boat coming into harbour.  I was standing on a bridge while my son fished.

 

Recently, I was touring a visiting friend and we watched while this boat tried and tried to line up with the trailer and truck used to haul the boat out for the winter.

 

We took the top photos from the bridge and it looked as though the line up was a go. Also from the top photo we see that scraping has begun for a paint touch up before spring.

the inset shot shows it is a sizable boat, Mary. i like the cab of the truck.
Care MacADNski: The boat is about typical in size and style of the fishing boats here.

Again I am reminded of how much boats are a part of your life, Mary.
Care MacADNski: Not mine, particularly, but certainly a part of many an Islander’s life. I do love them.
Une manœuvre intéressante, un bon coup de peinture s'impose.
Care MacADNski: They have already begun scraping for the paint job.
I love how you can measure your life with the boats that you see, and your photos of them! smile
Great series of shots!
Care MacADNski: The day fishing with my son was memorable. Then my grandson was born, then the annual Crow Walk - one of those days in your mind forever.
Interesting stuff Mary. I miss seeing the boats near my home in the U.K.
Care MacADNski: They are popping up in people’s yards like flowers these days. Taken out for the winter - one at a time.

A delightful set of pictures Mary
Care MacADNski: We were on the beach to the right of the slipway and decided we should get out of the way of the fellow backing down a big truck.

What a coincident is that, Mary. I love these pictures. I love boats!!! I run three times a week the citadel path and I always go to the big river and I always look at the many barges that come from Rotterdam going into Germany or the other way around... I love the sound of the engines too.
Care MacADNski: I love boats too. Tomorrow I am thinking of going to town to see the largest cruise ship that has ever been here. It is the MSC Meraviglia with 4500 passengers.

Good that you saw this boat again Mary. I nice sense of continuity
Care MacADNski: This is a local boat I see all the time but was at the right time to catch it coming in for the winter.

A bit small for Carrie g pairs of animals but it could be an insect ark.
Care MacADNski: The owners have quite a big family....
Island dwellers have an affinity with boats
Care MacADNski: Absolutely! Otherwise we would be stuck here. smile
I guess they actually made it out of the water in the end.
Care MacADNski: Yes, it looked like a go from our vantage point on the bridge.

A lovely series of images. There must be quite a technique to get the boats out of the water.
Care MacADNski: As peter suggests, crosswinds have a lot to do with it.
Talk about a photographer's dream, Mary. I love it.
Care MacADNski: I had a friend visiting and when we went down to the little beach all was calm. Then the sound of a big motor and we were surprised at what we saw.
i like this old red fishing boat Mary... it can be very difficult to trailer a boat when there is a cross wind... believe it i've had that trouble from time to time....petersmile
Care MacADNski: This is a very experienced family of fishers as well as the boat haulers. I think you are spot on about the cross winds making it difficult.
Getting it ready for next summer?
Care MacADNski: Taking it out for the winter. It is in a building for the winter unlike many boats. You can be assured the boat will be overhauled and ready for fishing season in spring. A well-known fishing family.
I like the photo story you've made, Mary! Some great shots smile
