Merry Christmas to all our readers

Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope you enjoy our little video in which Julie Atkin sings In the Bleak Midwinter. I’m sorry there aren’t too many boats in it, but it can be difficult to shoe-horn boat interest into the Christmas story!

In the meantime, Mal Nicholson has kindly sent me this splendid shot of Spider T in icy splendour (click on the image for a larger shot) and Emma at the Boat Building Academy sent me this cold, cold looking shot of beach huts at Lyme in the snow. Boatbuilder Charles Hussey has also chipped in with a shot of a narrow boat looking chilly (btw, check out the Drascombe Peterboat he built recently)…

  1. Gavin and Julie,

    Thank you for the timely reminder of Christ’s second advent as we remember His first.

    ‘Our God, heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
    Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
    In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
    The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.’

    Blessings and joy this Christmas,
