VIKING MATILDA

Just back from a few days in Thames / Coromandel, popped down to the Thames Marina to check out the woodys there. Most I have photographed before (link below) the only difference being another layer of seagull poop 🙂
One that stood out was – Viking Matilda, sporting a very distinctive paint job and an intriguing name.
Can anyone tell us the story behind this launch?

Thames River Rats

Last month I did a quick trip to Thames and called into the ‘marina’. The tide was out in the estuary so you get to see the marina looking it finest.
Lots of old girls there, resting up, contemplating life.
If you’re down that way The Wharf bar and Thames Wholesale Fisheries shop are ace. Same owners, so they deliver your newspaper wrapped dinner to the bar – we like that.  Worth a visit just for a cold one & the snapper & chips.

Off to check out another river today – the Wairau River, Clevedon – David Cooke and myself are doing a recky for the upcoming Woody Classics Weekend BBQ cruise (Nov 16>17th). Via car 🙂
