The lovely Karleen sits dejectedly on the harbour side in North Sunderland.

Before you go looking for a map, North Sunderland is probably 60 miles from Sunderland as the crow flies; indeed, it is much closer to Scotland than to Wearside. Until two days ago I would have said Seahouses harbour, but the sign at the entrance definitely said North Sunderland. Mrswoolybill and I went there for a bag of chips.

Karleen is rudderless at the moment. That means she's as good at navigating the salt seas as the Venus de Milo would be at doing the dishes. This is her stern. I expect she is of the genus or species known as a coble, but as I am a devoted landlubber I am uncertain.

Tomorrow I shall post another picture of Karleen to show that a rudder is not all she is lacking...........

I'm starting to get the distinct view that you quite like chips Bill. A lot of your sorties seem based around fish and chip shops !
Rust, peeling paint, colours and thingies - excellent shot, like it.

I hadn't realised until this week just how strong the connection is between photography and the Inner Woolybill...

Nice abstract Bill....colour and composition. Like the inclusion of the name though does add an air of sadness. Must try and find that old country and western album of hers.

And what a beauty Karleen is.The nameplate itself is quite a ''recent'' addition with the condition it is in.The print is well defined and the three screws are still in good condition.The two nuts and bolts at the top make me wonder what they are securing at the other side.Good contrast with the red and blue paint.The metal bar is like a thermometor.It shows four stages of rust,decay and weathering.Good indication where the water line is most prominent here.Yes I like Karleen.But I think you knew I would Bill

Karleen looks to have been quite patriotic in her youth, and the colours still survive. I like this, it's right up my street (boatyard).
