messing about in boats

A Fish (Well, Yacht) Out Of Water

Posted in Sailing by Joseph Moore on April 7, 2010

Thanks to Chris for donating a couple more photos of Nervous Tension when she went aground on his beach this winter. Judging by the damaged bow which has been tacked back on, this was the second time she made a bid for dry land.

    My heart nearly stopped seeing this pic. NT was my old boat, don’t let her die will you :) best small boat I ever sailed. if you want any info/history give me a shout. Very sad to see her like that but it’s not the first time it has happened to her I might like to say!

    Heart breaking we feared this might happen to her when we sold her :(

    So, I can confirm after a whole load of scraping and painting that the keel is very much intact!
