I is for an Inarguably Incapacitated and Inadequate Boat

This boat Is Indeed Incapable of being Introduced Into the sea. It would Immediately be completely Immersed In the Ice-cold water. It would be both Inept and Inelegant, and It would Indubitably Invalidate any Insurances held by the boats Inhabitants.





Today's post is an entry in the FIFTH round of ABC Wednesday, the meme initiated by Denise Nesbitt.

Trebåtar er min favoritt! Ingenting kan stille opp mot ein velholdt trebåt, denne såg ut som han hadde sett beire dagar, men gjorde seg flott på bilde.

Dina said...

Your way with English is Incredible!

But the boat is still beautiful.

Dimple said...

Indeed! This boat is indubitably injured!

Hyde DP said...

Dimple has just said what I was going to say Indeed!

John said...

I love the way the boat is built; you'd think someone would want to get back to shape.

Kate said...

Indeed, regardless of how it is described, the boat is worthy of a photo or two.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I'm amazed at how well you put English words together! Better than I do, I'm afraid. ;-)

Yes, I think the boat has seen better days.

imac said...

But it has beauty within - within the wood, and history - what a tale it could tell.
Well captured Rune, my friend.

Sylvia K said...

A marvelous post as always and like EG Tour Guide, I'm amazed at your use of English words! Puts me to shame! Great shots of the old boat that I'm sure has an interesting history! And, yes, I bet it could tell a tale!

Have a great day!

Sylvia

Oh yes a Tale! Or even a song?

Hildred and Charles said...

Great photo and incredible words.

Reader Wil said...

It's incredibly impressive and immensely interesting, Rune!

photowannabe said...

Ingenious use of the letter I.
Impecible pictures too.

Mara said...

It's a good thing you pointed out that it wasn't seaworthy. I might have taken it to see fully expecting it to float. There goes another of the Dutch myths: we are all seafarers!

Nailing boats together just doesn't seem right but the age of this one belies that old adage.

Morten Pedersen said...

Den hadde gjort seg i hagen. Flott bilde av båten.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Den har kanskje rodd sin siste tur ser det ut til, men det er utrolig hva som kan fikses med den rette innstillingen også :) Fotogen og flott avbildet var den i alle fall! :)

Ps: Takk for kommentarere, kanskje du kunne brukt den til Danmark :)

VALKYRIEN said...

Blir helt imponert over vokabularet her! Og båten var jo kjempefin, av det gode og gamle slaget. Første bildet er så stemningsfullt, nesten litt vemodig. Med starten på en eng i vekst der mener jeg!

Dagrun said...

Imponerende Innlegg!

Raph G. Neckmann said...

I've just tried saying the title of this post aloud - quite a tongue-twister!

The boat may not be seaworthy, but it looks lovely. I think I would put some tubs of plants in it and have it in the garden!

Anne said...

OH YES!!! akkurat slik vi liker dem :-) av tre!! værbitt og sjarmerende.

Tom said...

Injured it might be.... but look at the texture.. a great picture subject for sure...
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my walk... I was a little surprised you have never seen a rabbit hole before... I grew up with them... as a young lad I was taken out by my uncle who had working ferrets and nets... it was nothing to see over 30 rabbits caught in a morning in some places. Uncle Bert was a noted poacher.. who's skills were sought after by certain farmers to keep the rabbits down. The rabbits would be split up between the farmer and my uncle... As the were 7 mouths to feed in my family it was a good way to make sure there was food on the table... I remember coming home one time with 25 rabbits.... far to many for my mum... but we know familys that would be very greatful for them.

You set the bar high with your fancy "I" words. Also with your wonderful photos.

LOVE the photos and the narrative! You certainly did find lots of I words this week! :D

nonizamboni said...

Clever post and incredible photos. Nicely done!

ChrisJ said...

But I love an empty, old boat like that. And at one time it would have been of Inestimable worth!

Prospero said...

Is there a prize for alliteration?

Paula Scott said...

I love that boat!

Tumblewords: said...

Indeed! I'd love to hear its history. Bet it would have many tales to tell. Great photos!

PERBS said...

We had an old boat in the back yard of the church where the preschool kids loved to play their imaginary "games." That boat needs some little kids to play their intuitive, imaginary games with childlike innocence.

Rose said...

Very clever, RunE! But this old boat certainly makes an Interesting photo--great composition.

raf said...

The allure was inescapable and I came straightaway. Something told me you might have a wooden boat today and indeed......it works for me. An impressive and inspiring I post today, Rune!

~JarieLyn~ said...

I am mesmerized by your words and that first photo is spectacular.

Heges fotoblogg said...

HA HA fantastisk tekst! Denne båten har nok sett bedre dager, til gjengjeld kunne ikke bildene vært bedre :)

Jama said...

Well said! and such a beautiful shot.

magiceye said...

superb alliteration to accompany marvelous images!

Roger Owen Green said...

superb photos as always, but incredible intricate alliteration as well

Ann said...

What a lot of I,

Initially I imagine it is yours.

Jay said...

Such a lot of 'I's! LOL!

Intriguing! Great pics, too!

Barbara Martin said...

Again, great narrative with supporting photos. If the wood isn't too far gone perhaps the boat could be restored.

Heges fotoblogg said...

Takk for kommentar :) Jeg var litt usikker på bildet med gutten og hunden - jeg liker det selv men var i høyeste grad usikker på om det var "akseptabel".

PS. Morsomt at du er blitt med i Bekkalokket. Jeg har kjente der :)

Anne-Berit said...

Med litt god pleie og ei tids trutning,skulle den vel kunne blitt rodd igjen.Flotte bildero:o)

Q said...

You are Inspiring!
Always a delight.

Gallow said...

This boat is a great find to photograph, and you photographed it beautifully. Great job!!

I really like the first one with the rope. I like the contrast between the rigid wood, and the flexible rope.

Gallow said...

I forgot to add the word indubitably.
:-)

Judi said...

Beautiful photo.

Lew said...

Bautiful image, Rune! I'd say you covered "I" for the next several rounds.

Unseen Rajasthan said...

What an amazing and outstanding shot !! Everything is damn prefect with the photo !! Thanks for sharing..Unseen Rajasthan

Lara said...

good for a museum or for decorating a garden, I guess :)...

The Cowgirl said...

...but still lovely, nonetheless :)

Janie said...

Imaginative, interesting, impressive use of I's! Funny to show the grounded boat at the end.
