A photogallery stroll on the River Medway at Allington in Kent, including Dutch barges, a Thames barge yacht, various other craft and an Archimedes screw – I must visit with a larger camera some day, as it’s an impressive piece of machinery,
Gavin Atkin's weblog for the sort of people who like looking inside boat sheds. It's about old boats, traditional boats, boat building, restoration, the sea and the North Kent Coast

interesting … the Sailing Barge Defianace looks like a new build – researching on google – she seems to have been built in 2011 ? hard to tell from the pics – but she looks to be ‘full size’ about 80′ ?
I thought she looked a little smaller than 80ft, but I might easily have been wrong. Good looking boat though…
