Super watercolour Jim. The seas are excellent and you either have an exceptionally steady hand or a set of plastic curves to help with the rigging!

Anchor my elbow on the table, turn the 'canvas' to where I can draw an arc using my elbow as a fulcrum, couple of dummy runs, then paint the line. As the Meerkat “simples”. Well it’s the easiest way I know.

No. From a comfy easy chair in a cottage in Auchtermuchty in Fife (Fife, once described as 'a Beggars Mantle fringed with Gold) Scotland.
