After six years – or is it seven? – the boat that John Couzens’ son Dan has been building is finally complete and Wednesday December 10th was the day set for its transfer from John’s garden to Ramsgate Harbour. Here we see the proud owner on board although John is the first to admit that it is very much Dan’s project. The day was bright and dry with none of the wind that was forecast although things did not go quite to plan. A burst water main caused by the giant crane followed by a burst tyre on the crane itself threatened to ruin the day but John, ever the optimist, was sure there would be time to complete the job and the BBC were there to record it (see the clip below).
