Shoreham-by-Sea has some interesting houseboats, cobbled together from transportation that was never intended to float on water....

That beats my VW Touran on top of a barge any day.

That looks quite similar to the one moored on The Medway in Strood



ETA - That picture is from 2007 btw. These days it is more iron oxide, less black in colour. And jauntily listing to starboard.

SS Klondike (strictly speaking, SS Klondike II as the original ran aground and was cannibalised to build this one).  Big sister of yesterday's SS Keno - 64m long, 12.5m beam, 1m draught when fully loaded.  Being tended this morning by a splendidly piratical-looking chap with a big black beard and an eyepatch.  He looked a bit fierce so I didn't ask him where his parrot was.

Spotted in Honfleur harbour.   You must believe me, when I say this was far larger, ( I'd say its a least twice as large as you think it is) and so much more stunning in reality, photos just DO NoT do it justice.

Here it is. http://langskip.com/Langskip.COM/Home.html

It's beautiful but I wonder how you can get out of the cockpit to go on decg with the dodger in the way.

Shouldn't that be Dar Młodzieży? I guess it sounds the same though, so all okay.

I figured it was either keyboard or the kind of spello you make when you don't have to think about it. And people say phonetically spelled languages make writing easier!

In the words of my late father (Master Mariner), "There's two ways of doing a job - the wrong way and the right way."

The ship I was on the crew never needed any prompting to make her as ship-shape and as beautiful as possible in port. Point of honour for all concerned.

It'd be easy enough to set up keys to write in Polak.
Truth of the matter is that it is something I do so rarely, it doesn't seem worth the bother.
