Lower Heyford–strange sight.

When this boat approached I couldn’t see the steerer but when it went by I realised the steerer was sitting down. By the time I had extracted my camera the steerer was standing upIMAG0233

He still couldn’t quite see so he had to clamber up a but higher – the perfect manoeuvre for a corner.

No more pictures because I got the giggles.

One has to ask why he has built a contraption directly in front of his line of sight... Sure it protect the hatch from rain but of the cost is not seeing where he is going what is the point. But hey - he has his bases covered. Of he seers into another boat by mistake and falls off he is ready with his ladder to climb out of the cut. Dream Maker? - its the stuff of nightmares if you ask me.

Well I have seen it all now. What a wonderful way to sort out stuff on the prop!

Nip down the ladder and free it!!

I'm with you on that one, Ahab.

Any boat with 'Dream' anywhere in it's name should be taken, sunk, burnt or destroyed as per Admiralty Orders of the 1800s.......

However, what's the chances the skipper is ex-RN?

And a submariner to boot....

Why else the ladder out of the water and the need for a periscope to see where he's going?
