Having lived on Portland since a child, all of my recreational activities have always revolved around the sea.
School holidays were spent shore fishing, going to sea and helping out on commercial crabbers, snorkeling and prawning with a dip net.After leaving school I joined the navy and continued my education. Upon leaving the navy I worked in a variety of engineering firms, was lucky to be around at a time when companies paid for further education and university sandwich courses. I finally joined the Education Department of Dorset County Council. Now retired aged 56.
I have always maintained my interest in all activities relating to the
sea, have written articles about bass fishing for the Angling Times, have
been involved in a number of boat building projects, converted half of
my garage into a temperate marine fish house, interested in the application
of new technologies and introducing my three grandchildren to the wonders
or at 53 Nightingale Drive, Broadwey, Weymouth, Dorset DT3 5ST.
