Sunday Morning 5.00 am

Back in June this year the HBBR stalwarts gathered at Lechlade for our now annual Thames Rally to Beale Park Boat show. It might have been the anticipation of the journey to come or perhaps the call of nature that had me up and about at 5.00 am on the day of departure, but it was a lovely morning as the sun broke through and slowly burned off the early morning mist.    

No Kidding

Tally Ho!

Welcome back.
Its been a very busy summer with one thing and a wedding, so there hasn't been much time for blogging, but now that the mellow and fruitful season of Strictly Come Dancing is well under way I might have more time to pay attention to this demanding mistress. I've given her a bit of a facelift and a tidy up, I hope you enjoy it.

I feel I might be the last one invited to the party with this story, but many thanks to my good friend John (Ratcatcher) Lockwood for letting me in on the secret.
This is the story of the restoration of Tally Ho, a 1910 Albert Strange Gaff Cutter being saved single handed by a young sailor called Leo.
He is inventive hardworking and broke, but seems unstoppable, subscribe to his YouTube channel and give him a hand.
Be warned it can get addictive.
