Boats Notes and Ships Tips by Steve Dales

I very much enjoyed visiting the Sunderland Maritime Heritage Trust workshop as a ‘research’ trip for another project on 19th Century migration in Co.Durham. My granddad was a fisherman in Hull back in the thirties and done a bit of sailing. Boats are amazing things and so are the men that make and fix. Steve Dales
