Boats

Being an island we get quite a few boats coming by for a visit.  The most frequent is the Dale Princess that drops off up to 300 day trippers, 6 days a week whenever the wind allows.  But every now and then we get a more interesting vessel like this Herring Drifter which stopped by recently.  Will, the guy in charge of the hostel on Skomer, is doing a bit of research on this boat and will be doing a blog on the Skomer blog soon so keep an eye out!  (He took these photos too so this really is a cheat blog…)

It kind of puts the other boats to shame really…

And in other news a very low, low spring tide led to a local boat running aground recently- and it being a slow news day it made it onto the BBC front page.  All was well in the end with passengers being offloaded quickly and the boat being patched up and returned to the boatyard by the next morning- did give us a bit of excitement and plenty of phone calls for the day though!
