The Cinque Port of Sandwich

We have some jolly railwayiana this morning. High-class award-winning amateur boatbuilder, unassuming Sage of the Little Green Shed and man with strong railway connections, Chris Perkins has put a series of five scans of a series of prints commissioned for the railways of Cinque Ports by the artist Jack Merriot on his website StrathkanChris’s Little World.

He suggested intheboatshed.net should link to them, knowing full well that I can’t resist a nice old-fashioned artworks like these. See the full set, as well as some immaculate boats built to Iain Oughtred plans and the first build of the new Michael Storer Raid boat at Chris’s website.

Don’t miss something good. Get regular bulletins from intheboatshed.net now!

    I like watercolours as a medium and somewhere here I've got a small pic by Jack Perrot of yachts in a river. (Almost everything is still in boxes). Don't recall if it's a print or an original, it hasn't been hung in years. I once had painting pretentions myself.

    I stayed for five days in Hythe just near one of those towers. They have a great fish market and the trawlers on the beach are interesting picture material. Locals thought I was mad as I took my morning swim, often enough amongst a school of small fish. If possible and practical I like to swim wherever I visit. West coast of Scotland was fantastic, and deserted.
