A Water Blog

Actually, it’s a blog about all things to do with water travel. I started as a sailor, then I broadened out to being, as the Aussies say, a ‘slow-water boater’, and finally to liking water in any form.

I’ve been reading water-related stories for over 30 years. Swapping story recommendations in various boatyards, marinas, and anchorages is always fun, however I couldn’t find a site which was dedicated to collecting this info. So, here is a blog which I hope will be of interest and use to anyone who likes ‘messing about in boats’.
