Amity

This shot is amongst our HMS Worcester collection of photos which I gather for the OW's. It was added to the collection by our fine marine artist Roger Morris. Amity is depicted here aground after a gale which looks as though it is still blowing as Worcester and Cytty Sarks mooring chains are well stretched. Amity had an affinity for Worcester as she let go the Floating Crane barge once, the engine gave up,a couple of chuffs and the Ghost. Whereupon Amity swung away to port and then drifted down to lay broadside across Worcesters bow. We all trotted up to the foc'stle to gaze down at the wee vessel balanced across the mooring chains and the efforts of the large Everard tug S.A.Everard to tow her off which she did with little damage.

Trust a ruddy Gingerbeer to not see that the wind is blowing directly onto the beach ... she probably broke adrift from the same Floating Crane mooring she came down onto Worcester from during my time...


No wonder you finished up as a Gingerbeer, "Peg Leg" Harvey couldnt teach you navigation !!!

anyway ... why haven't you been annoying me on the E-group lately CT???

Hi Barnsey,
Cut off in me prime mate !! At the moment. ISP e-mail problems. Still, can always have a go on here. !
Quite enjoy this forum. A bit of trouble getting around the site and trying to remember wher I've been. What is the score with the trawler boys ? No access, although I don't think I will get too upset about that though.
I have posted some pics lately of my North Sea "adventure"
PS Call that a beach ?
Cheers
Colin
