    I always wondered what they meant when they said they were on the "Dog Watch" This one fascinated by the disturbance from the prop.

    Sweet shot! I like how you can see the paintings on the inside of the open doors, and all the 'boat stuff' like ropes and chains. I'm trying to figure out from the shape what kind of boat it is...a mini tug or ferry of some kind?

    It is a "longboat" a narrow motorised barge designed for the inland waterways - now floating caravans and many "new build" to the same pattern. I will post a picture of one tomorrow.

    More than I had ever seen at one time as a National event had taken place at St Ives over the holiday weekend

    ^^^ I like the shot of several of those boats, with the framing leaves. Very colourful.
