    I like the bollard too.

    Now this isn´t England, Ireland or Scotland but it is a lovely picture again from today's Mail.

    Love the last one my kind of photo as is the rusty mooring bollard.

    Up early in morning as we've had some stunning sunrises past few days so camera battery is on charge and off to try some photos of sunrise, will post them if it works out OK.

    Nah, you stick a lump of wood in a capstan and turn it round like a winch to lift things...

    This isn´t a forum for numbskulls, we have all the intelligent stuff on here too.

    Note spelling - not to be confused with NUMSKULLS from the Beano

    Bollards, handy for sitting on. The bit on the the front of the boat that you tie the mooring line to is called a Sampson post. Cos it has to be strong I suppose, ie; not fitted by me. InfoForum.
