Odds and ends on a quay (still testing)


The learning process is a long one and every opportunity must be utilized. Even if there is a drop of rain in the air. I found this old boat mooring on a quay I often visit when I am out walking. I thought it worth a closer look.

I suspect that larger ropes have been used previously than the one we see here.

A nice picture I probably would not have thought of taking.

Ja får da håpe det tauet ikke har blitt brukt til førtøyning, en smule underdimensjonert kan man vel si. Flott bruk av dybdeskarpet også.

BTW, is that a string or a small rope. If it is a rope that is one big tie off!
