Ian Tyson sings about sailing on the Gillking with his slippery city shoes on.
Shown here tied to a log tow of cedar and fir waiting for the weather
These stranded funny little boat shots are great, I love 'em!!. Good work Carter, Regards from Aus,~Lex
Thanks Lex. We were tied up for weather, looks like with the sunny sky it must have been a NW wind. We did lay at times for over a week waiting for conditions to change. The logs tow we had was roughly 1000' long and 250' wide and owners generally freaked out if you lost a 'few' pieces so prudence was the byword.
Reminds me of a Gordon Lightfoot ditty..can't remember the name of it tho.."Hope you find your way back home before you die.."
Thanks Jock! Ya, High and Dry by Gordon Lightfoot, his lyrics are beautiful. Another Canadian singer Ian Tyson wrote a tune called Summer Wages where he sails on a tug with his 'slippery city shoes on' and the Gillking was the boat. It was built in the 40's and died around 2000, I think at home. Cheers, Carter
