10th South West Ship Show - a special one

To be held in Parish Wharf Leisure Centre on 18 April. It is looking excellent this year. It will be the tenth Show and I see there are some special things happening. Best of all, the preserved tug John King (1936 built) will be in Portishead marina and open to visitors who have Show tickets. I see that there will also be three new books launched at the Show as part of the 10th anniversary celebration. It should be a good day.

The tug John King is now in Portishead Marina. And there is a bonus - the tug Volunteer is also there. This was C J King's first diesel tug - built in 1934. Amazing that these two tugs from the 1930s have been reunited.

Wow. What a day it was. The hall was packed and there were so many fabulous displays - and traders. The icing on the cake was the two tugs only a stone's throw from where the event was held. Sorry ben27, but I do not have a digital camera so I can't post any photographs. Hopefully someone else will oblige.

I enjoyed it, and managed to buy a few more books and magazines (to the Mrs horror), and the WSS stand cleared a lot of books but no new members which is a shame.

I hope to see you all there again next year
