Boat Friday

 

It's not always what it's cracked up to be, especially when you need a ladder!

Global warming? Where has all the water gone, then...
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling climate change is doing its number everywhere, Ray.
she's gonna need some scraping and a whole lot of calking before they paint her up Ginnie... great Boat Friday....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Peter. Lest we forget how much work goes into keeping up a boat!

Cracking picture smile
I see he awaits guests, the chairs are waiting too.
Fabulous shot, great B&W.
Ginnie Hart: Bedandt, MLMA. I was short of eyes as we walked around the harbor that day!

Oh, I admire what your eyes are discovering and I like your subtitle - it is so true!
Ginnie Hart: That's so sweet of you, Philine. Hartstikke bedankt!

A nice complex jumbly image Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: All on a nice day's walk, Chris! smile
Some repairs are certainly needed here Ginnie! Great capture.
Ginnie Hart: I suppose this is when boat ownership has its drawbacks, Richard?!

I recall your being attracted to this, Ginnie - as a subject for your camera, not to buy, of course!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Some things are definitely left for the camera alone, Lisl. What fun to see such oddities! smile
Chris would have this up and sailing again in a jiffy, in another life maybe.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'm sure you're right, Mick. smile
Coat of paint it will be fine Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Just ask, Bill, and Astrid and I will be there in a jiffy. smile

The top looks better than the bottom Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Hmmmm. I'm thinking about if/how this concept might transfer to other things, Chad?

Definition of a boat.

A hole in the water that you pour money into ;o) And this one isn't even in the water!

Nice near monochrome - the stack of four chairs look very institutional.
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes you really have to think twice before you buy, Mike, I know! smile

Looks like a ship scrap yard, Ginnie.
Maybe it's Noah's ark? ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, HF. And maybe?! smile

NO.. it's not all about flashy "gin palaces". Some require lots of TLC to their bottoms. At least there are some chairs here to sit on for a while.
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling it's quite a bit harder than it looks, Alan, for sure!
I did a 14-mile long walk along River Roach in Essex last week.
Half way through the walk, I saw a shipyard similar to this!
Ginnie Hart: I hope you took plenty of pictures, LC. I'd love to see what you saw. smile
nice and tight framing smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Joshi.
I'm not sailing on this boat even if I have to clime a ladder.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA. Smart lady, Mary.
love the effects here Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Ronky.
Great image Ginnie........boat yards are fascinating! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin, and yes they are!
Perfectly good boat for the camera lens Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Jacquelyn. I like that thought.
I guess this is the cheap end of the boatyard.
Ginnie Hart: Well, I guess you could say it was on the other side of the tracks, Brian. smile

I like the conversion. Strange thing, what catches my eye is the 4 stacked chairs
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Louis...and I know. Me, too. smile
Your images always have many thoughts on interest Ginne, today I am thinking why the chairs have been left there.
Ginnie Hart: It reminds me of what we call "white trash" in America, Scotia. Please tell me it's not so.
Great shot!

I'm trying to imagine what it must have looked like when it was new, Ginnie. Hopefully they can do a good restoration job.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Beverly. I hope so, too. What a shame to have it go to waste!
They won't find that much use at sea!
Ginnie Hart: Well, at least not in this state, Tom! smile
LOL! Great caption and capture! Have a wonderful weekend!! xo
Ginnie Hart: So good to see you back, dear lady. You have a great weekend, too, wherever you are.
The pictures are still in my camera wink Haven't uploaded them to my computer yet.

Come and visit me tomorrow, I've got some narrowboat pictures for you. smile
Ginnie Hart: YAY for the narrowboats, LC. Thanks for letting me know. smile
A ladder? I thought that's what the stacked chairs were for...
Ginnie Hart: Maybe the chairs are the backup plan, Larry? smile
Lovely shot. That is a great old boat.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. It did make me take a second look. smile
Nice processing Ginnie. Perfect for this subject.
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Marie.

wood boats take constant work, our was cement lol floated like a hollow rock and was no work at all smile
Ginnie Hart: I guess one would really have to take boat material into account when buying one, Elaine! I think I'd go for a pontoon boat. HA!
Lobe the white of the boats against that dark sky, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Pauline. It was such a bright, sunshiny day! smile
