    Thank you! I have had a second attempt today. They look better. But I still can't grasp the middle string, how to do the top part.

    Hi Pete, We have a photo of her with some on, this is what has inspired me to get practising them. Will have to wait an see how they turn out.

    Hi Pete, I have just logged into Devs emails, and he feels quite foolish he somehow has missed the yard number! The timeline on the Effy site is based off what you had sent him. I believe his dad printed a shorten version and laminated it for him to keep on Effingham, which is the one I used to put on the website. This is the first time I have seen this and shall now however definitely be updating the timeline with all the information you sent him! In regards to how you found this information, I have found that Cheshire archives have copies of vessel registration from the Pimblotts yard. Have you been to see these?

    It's the first time i'v heard of them. I will have to flick through the website. Unforuntly London is a little far for me! Hopefully we are planning a trip on the themes next year. So there will be a lot of backwards an forwards on trains whilst we get the boat there. Might be a nice diversion for a couple of hours or so.

    I'v had a quick flick through his videos. There are a few good ones which i'v saved for later. After tackling these cabin strings for Effingham. Think my next project is maybe fenders.

    I remember visiting rope makers in Hawes when I was a child. Never thought at that point I would be interested in rope or even living on a boat! Looks like a trip is to be planned. Just want to learn as much traditional boat work as possible.

    I will have a look and see if I can find a pdf version before I buy the book, or have a hunt for it in a book store.

    This is amazing, its very interesting too see the different lengths an thickness the used for straps and other thing. It gives an real insight to the olden days boating. It's brilliant what you can find when you start digging through archives.

    I have bought some 12mm cotton rope from http://www.ropeservicesuk.com/. 20 meters worth. Hopefully it is here before we set sail Friday to head to Audlum. Will have a look and see if I can find The Ashley Book of Knots. The more books the better
