Hi Tone,

I like the way you have created the curves in this picture. My first impression was of the boat doing 'handbrake turns' if that were possible! They give a definite sense of movement. I liek it Best Wishes Peter

Hi Peter The little Gosport ferry doesn't like been held up by the large cross channel ferries as they are on a tight schedule. I've named it handbrake turn:)))) Best Wishes Tone.
