Observers Book of I-Spy Working Boats

Observers Book of I-Spy Working Boats

Do you remember from the 50-60-70's the little brown Observers book of (some aspect of everyday life). I have a couple of old copies of the Observers Book of Birds and the Observers Book of Birds Eggs. I remember having a copy of the Observers book of Aircraft – which is unfortunately long lost.

Then there were the I-spy books of the 50-60's and Big Chief I-Spy. I understand that the I-Spy books are now being updated and re-published once again.

So by way of a nod to my childhood – I have created my own list of the Observers I-Spy of Working Boats. The ones that we have “Observed” are in bold text and the ones we are hoping to eventually “I-Spy” are in normal text.

Now I know that the list is short and that there are many other current and once upon a time “working boats” still out on the canal. So if you know of any addition to my list of the Observer book of I-Spy Working Boats. I would be pleased to add them to the list.
