Hello. I ran across your beautiful site and have been enjoying it so very much. I am a land locked lady living in the US so your lfe style looks like heaven to me. Your beautiful boats, white sales against the blue sky and the water lapping the sides, is pure beauty. They say we should bloom where we are planted, but if I could be transplanted, it would be to your place on this earth.

Willie the Working Boat is the hero in a story for children of 4-8 titled Simon the Speedboat and the SOS. The story and others in the Kevin the Canvas Canoe and his friends series are inspired by life on the Carrick Roads where the author lives and sails.

The members of the association might like to know that greetings cards and calendars which feature their boats in watercolour paintings are now available. They can be bought direct from me (the artist) or at a number of shops in the area. One of the best stockists is Carnon Downs post office which has 11 of the 20 paintings as cards. Boats which feature include Moon, Stella, Helen Mary, Evelyn, Mildred, Cousin Jack, Abigail Rose, Demelza, Victory, Sereca Mabel, Delivrance, Florence, Lily, Victory, Leila, Grace Stella Zulu and Irene. I hope your members like what they find.
