I will endeavour to keep a little update of the repairs etc here.

The boat had been under a tarp, but on the ground for a while before I was given it. It has sat up off the ground either on its launching trolly and in the garage or propped up and under a tarp outside when I needed the garage space recently. It is now on a DIY 'dolly' in the garage where I can work on it either way up as required.

So long, since my last post on the Blog. Life seems to have had other needs and time spent writing and online seemed not to be important..!

Life around the Longhouse has been filled. The garden is greening with plenty of summer rain and a few sunny interludes.

I have gone with a simple piece of 10mm elastic bungee which is pretty strong to hold the camera in place, it in turn is fixed to the edge of the shelf on each side.

Just done a 7x5 print of my sisters Cocker Spaniel. Same roll of Fomapan 400, the one with the grain I don't like.... 😉 Chalk and cheese to the digital scan of the same image...! On paper this is a much better film.
