"Sudden Death" the alternative to "Zeal"...

So named as it was a rowing boat of narrow beam with no centreboard that we foolishly put a sail on.
Drawn from memory by my brother Colin Grimes.

"Zeal"....Squall...Not all plain sailing

Getting wet on the Pyefleet
1947..Drawn from memory

My last steed

Due to advancing age,brittle bones and fear of dropping off the thing which can hurt a bit I have given up bikes after 57 years of bashing the roads.and am now on boring four wheels and sit in traffic jams watching with envy bikers creaming by and disappearing rapidly round the corner ahead that I know is going to take me ten minutes to even reach in my tin box... The only time a car makes for better travelling is when it's raining or on a motorway.
From a Vespa to a Zephyr,and a lot of bikes in between,,thanks for the memory.
