... been returned to the sea, we went down around the coast. The captain kept us entertained with information about the various places we passed, such as the farm where the striped Belted Galloway cattle are reared for their beef, and the family that own a local lighthouse.

They sell both display-type models, which might grace a shelf in a home or office, and remote-controlled model boats which ...

He explained each verse before he sang it, and was wonderfully entertaining – he clearly has a deep love of sailing, and greatly enjoys sharing that with the people who visit his museum.
