It’s wonderful to be appreciated, Part II…

The Truant Romance Keith Kendrick, singer of sea songs and concertina player has been doing particularly well in the past couple of months, not least in terms of the numbers of people calling by to read our daily posts. As I write, we’ve had almost 34,000 hits, which I’m told makes us very successful for a weblog about a minority activity. While I would agree that we’re not doing too badly, I’d also suggest that perhaps the people who admire traditional boats constitute quite a large minority, as minorities go…

I’m particularly pleased today as we’ve had a delightful message of support from the great US writer and editor Peter H Spectre, as you can see at the bottom of this page:

Peter was editor of Woodenboat for many years, and has written and co-written a string of classic texts about boating, and about the techniques of traditional boat building, repair and restoration, and painting and varnishing.

Sharp-eyed readers will have noticed that his dazzling weblog reviewing the literature of traditional boats and boating appears in our links column on the right-hand side of this page, but I’d also like to mention that Peter writes a column for a magazine called Maine Boats and Harbours. Read it here:

Finally, check out Peter’s books in the bookshop. Quite a few will be interesting, and some may be essential!
