Les Auld: Thanks Frances, took a bot of work to bring it all out though.

Les Auld: Took a bit of work Linda but seemed OK in the end. Thanks for the comment.
Does look a bit knackered Les. A bit sad really
Les Auld: They have to fade away sometime Bill, thanks for the comment.
There must be hundreds of boats abandoned like this throughout the country.
Les Auld: And we keep taking their photographs Brian, thanks for the comment.
These sad old wrecks litter the east coast,too. ( But we still get about taking pictures)
Les Auld: They do indeed Graeme and I often think our picture taking would be sadder if they had been totally scrapped.
Very nice
Les Auld: Thanks you John.
