great photos

Post by Nessa » Wed Mar 27, 2013 1:43 pm

in a new old book bought from ebay. 'The Young Sailor' by Guy Pennant. Photo of Merlin 206, i14s Seafox and Fly, BM 151, N12 259 and others, plus a little paragraph mentioning the possible amalgamation of the Rocket Class with the Merlin Class.

Oh and a useful tip saying girls should be discouraged from wearing skirts to sail in as they might catch in things. Not a buoyancy aid in sight. Fab.

This reminds me of "The Incredibles." (Great movie...one of Pixar's best)

Anyone remember Edna's quote:- "No capes!"

...from about 2 minutes in. Or enjoy the whole clip.
