Hi PappagHi Tim,
I have just mentioned your thread to my mum and she remembers Roger and Joan Pennington, could they be your parents?
Joan and Roger are my parents and we moved out of the basin in 1967/68 to Sussex, unfortunately not by the sea. We have lots of happy memories of the basin. My mum says I learnt to swim at an early age , because I was always falling in.
I wonder wether they found lots of toys In the basin, because I was always posting them through the portholes, including dad's lead soldiers!!
Who are your parents and which boat did you live on?
Look forwrd to hearing more. Have asked my brother to dig out photos.
All the best
Tim & mum(Joan)
