The Boaters Alphabet (I)

This is one of an occasional series of entries into my blog. The "Boaters Alphabet" today's letter is I and is an Inlet. A small narrow waterway leading to a sheltered haven a safe place to moor.

is for Images of the early canal builders. The Industrial revolution that the digging of canals kickstarted. Today these images are just faded picture's that hark back to an Important time in our history. Now we only glide pass the remains of that old heritage. The canals bear silent testimony of the days of the number one and the engineering skills of the old navigators.  Many interesting places to visit with some to tarry for a while. Someone has it to do, it is not easy, this time its my turn.

Inboard - toward the center of a vessel and a type of motor fitted inside a boat.
Inglefield - a clip for attaching a flag to a halyard.
Inflatable - a dinghy or raft that can be filled with air.
