Photos of Will
- Crikey Paul...... sorry mate I totally forgot to say thank you. Big
apologies and a BIG THANK YOU!! Fantastic, she was the 2nd barge I
ever went aboard and that was for researching a painting. Just out of
curiousity have you seen Fred Everard in the book "Everards of
Greenhithe" I was amazed the way she looked after being converted. You
could never tell she was once a barge.
Thank you again Paul
- Probably the best photos that I took during the Thames Match cannot be
retrieved from my camera. I am desperately seeking photos of Will
particularly when she was bearing away from Southend near the ship
that was anchored. Her she was being tossed around. Her bows rising
and falling - lovely sight. Please........ anyone???
- Hi Michael
Have been admiring your Thames Match shots - and latest opening page
shot of Decima. Wonderful! Finally got to download my photos (only a
few as was a very busy race on the leeboards etc on the journey out).
Anyway I've added 3 of the Will to the Thames match folder - Will 1, 2
& 3 (original ,eh?) - last one is a bit shakey and was taken as we
overtook her and like you we were going up and down at some terrific
speed! See also photo of Decima cutting through the waves - we had
previously hit a big wave which sent a large spray of water over the
bow and down the decks.
Is it a digital camera? Is it that you cannot retrieve the image files
off the data card? If so I can recommend retrieval software.

- Hi Mike no my camera is pre card and runs on floppy disks. Very
susceptible to the vageries of heat/any mis-handling/ wear and tear.
The disc in question reported bad sectors and has now gone to floppy
heaven via the recycle bin. This is happening all to often now so I'll
scour the antique shops looking for replacement floppy's or most
likely treat myself to a more up to date camera. Should have taken my
Canon A1 it's so trustworthy.......... Michael
