    Great shot of this hard working barge – too busy to paint it we hope ! When I was in the British Merchant Navy we used to call a good ship that was hard to get a job on, a coffin job because the only way to get a job was to be at the bottom of the gangway when one of the crew was carried down in a coffin and you would be the first one up the gangway to take his job.
  • Guess the skippers are too busy to paint it’s hard today to earn an income. Great story Roy thanks for sharing and commenting!
