Work will make you Free.


Sometimes you just really need to bring in the money. Thankfully Jan and BP Norse Marine are lately keeping me busy as fuck. Takes my mind off the fact that Wendy Ann is stuck powerless in the middle of the river Itchen waiting for the spring tides and good weather for her home berth. Illustrated is a recent short tow of the laden hopper barge VR49 out of berth 202 in Southampton as the sun sets on a marvellous force nothing sea, promising an easy ten hour trip with the tide. Please gods, let the weather be like this next week for Ms Ann’s big tow.

Great conditions for such an operation :o)) lets hope it is the same (or better) for your trip to Littlehampton!

I'm not generally a big fan of political correctness, but I think your choice of title for this post may be a bit dodgy considering it's intimate association with the Nazi concentration camps and all that goes along with that.
That aside, what a fantastic effort you two have made to rescue this boat. Congratulations!

Dear Anonymous...

Fair enough, inappropriate and offensive sense of humour attack.

Translation effected.
