messing about in boats

Living Up To Her Name

Posted in Sailing by Joseph Moore on May 5, 2010

Got a call from James, the harbour patrol officer this morning – he’d been out on his rounds and noticed that Nervous Tension has taken to self-destructing. I suspect the damage is because the mooring chain has been bouncing around like a good-un in the chop after it was unlashed from the forestay and not resecured. Maybe it just chafed through, I don’t know. Let this be a lesson; never let anyone else touch your boat’s mooring lines. Either way it looks like I get an impromptu trip to the boat to spend some time grinding, glassing and generally spending more money when I should be at home working. Balls.
