This site is mostly about my boat, Idle Duck, its own history and the associated stories behind those involved with her; the designer, Maurice Griffiths, Scottish builder, and links to her East Coast Bawley origins.
The sales leaflet from yacht broker David East shows how she looked in 1987, when Brian Kelly, the original owner, decided to sell Idle Duck. I found this tucked behind the stove with some other interesting documents. David East 1987
These are the first two pages from the visitors log showing Colin Grierson, Maurice Griffiths, James Miller and all the people who built her. It seems that Brian and Zelda kelly did not sign the book until 1987 when they were selling her.
This site is also about my personal views on maritime matters, especially in Faversham, where Idle Duck and I have spent the last 12 years.
