Boat Friday

comments (27)

Pas banale comme situation acrobatique pour un joli bateau, maman, qui va sur l'eau.
Lisl: Not a god photo, but I thought it would make an unusual "Boat Friday"
There at the right time Elisabeth, don't drop it !
Lisl: This was taken in Charleston in Cornwall (where Poldark was filmed)
Oh don't drop it!!! Nice catch, Lisl!
Lisl: I opened my eyes wide when I saw this
Drôle de situation. Bonne Saint Valentin !
Lisl: Happy Valentine's Day to you, too, Martine

This will float?
Lisl: Perhaps not!
Oh, WOW, Lisl. What a fantastic, unusual image for Boat Friday!
Lisl: A wee bit different, Ginnie, thank you

You got yourself a winner here, Lisl. Don't you just love it....
I hope they secured the boat onto the forklift....
Lisl: Well, I didn't see it fall off, Astrid!

Judging by the wet roads and all the rain we've had; it won't be much longer when thereat won't need a forklift truck to get it to somewhere else. My friend's 25ft motor cruiser comes out of dry store on a huge forklift truck whenever he needs it.
Lisl: You are familiar with the process then, Alan

I hope he does not drop the boat on that chap’s head Lisl.
Lisl: Don't worry too much, Chad - all was well

I thought that this was actually “ fork lift Friday”
Lisl: Ah - brilliant, Richard - when are you going to inaugurate it?
That will teach them not to double park their boat
Lisl: Love it, Richard! Sorry, Bill!

This is a very special 'Boat Friday'! I see it has rained herew, too.
Lisl: A bit different, Philine. Yes - this is in Cornwall, where it always rains

Lisl: Ha - yes!
Ha ha! I was sure this was Astrid's post. Excellent capture, Lisl!
Lisl: Thank you, Care - yes, it is the sort of thing Astrid would post
Yikes! I hope it all went well. Friendship
Lisl: I didn't see it topple off, ruthie!

could come in handy with all the rain we have had
Lisl: An umbrella boat
It looks to be quite precariously perched on the blades of the fork lift.
Lisl: I guess it was OK, it crossed the road and trundled of safely, Brian

Looks like we are having rains..Hope the boat does not have to be dropped down here to rescue people in a flood-like situ!!
Lovely image and great details here smile))
Devi smile
Lisl: Boats like this are need in the country at the moment, as we have many flood warnings on our rivers for tomorrow. We had a severe storm last weekend and another coming tonight
This is a delicate operation, do not get distracted because if the boat falls, there is no water underneath. LOL!
Lisl: I think it made its way safely to the water, Marie. I hope so!
it's heading for some repairs Lisl... good find for Boat Friday....petersmile
Lisl: In good hands, then Peter, thank you
There's a good find for Friday, Lis! Were they about to launch it? smile
Lisl: This was a little way inland, so I am not sure. Peter thought it might be going for repair
I wonder how far into the water the fork-lift can go?
Lisl: That's a thought

a terrific find for the day
Lisl: I was deligted
Surprenant ..j'espère qu'il est bien calé ..
Lisl: I hope so, too!
i am guessing the operator of the fork lift is very experienced, Lisl, but i wish the other guy would back off some more.
Lisl: I hope they are used to working together
Flying high!
Lisl: Not the usual place for a boat!
