The Grimsby Dock Tower has dominated the town's skyline since it was built in 1852 A torchbearer will abseil down Grimsby's Dock Tower with the Olympic flame when it comes to the Humber region next year, it has been revealed. During four days in June 2012 the torch relay will make 11 stops in the area and two overnight stays.The procession will visit the East Riding on 18 and 19 June and northern Lincolnshire on 26 and 27 June. A torchbearer will run past the Humber Bridge, rather than over it, so the moment can be best captured on camera. The Dock Tower was built in 1852 and was based on the Palazzo Pubblico in Sienna, Italy. The abseil will take place on 27 June. The event will be observed by Boatshed Lincolnshire as we are based within sight of the tower which has been a seafarers landmark for many years.

A UNIQUE WATERSIDE LIFESTYLE
ISLAND LIFE Island Harbour is conveniently located near to many of the island's fantastic attractions and sites of interest. We've picked a few of our favourites, although any of our staff will be happy to advise on days out.
Island Harbour began life as one of the great English tide mills, the East Medina Mill. The original building was built on the site of today’s lock entrance in 1790 by William Porter, a baker from nearby Newport. At this time the Medina River was a mooring place for convict transports, and a story related in Albin’s History of the Isle of Wight published in 1795 tells of an occasion when Mr Porter's workmen were rowing down to work from Newport they were taunted with being bound for Botany Bay. In this way, East Medina Mill became known as Botany Bay Mill. However, a more likely interpretation is that William Porter supplied ship's biscuits to the convict transports in the river. Just after 1790 the banks who had previously supported Mr. Porter withdrew their funding and the business was forced to close. Thomas Porter died a year later and the buildings were left empty.
Seattle weather forecasters call it a Canadian weather system. Our friends in British Columbia, suffering similarly from the cold, call it an Alaskan weather system. Either way, the Northwest has been blasted with miserable weather -- strong winds, snow, ice & frigid record breaking temperatures. Though a fresh blanket of new fallen snow is beautiful, it can be a hassle if you’re a boat owner or a boat broker.
Seattle is a beautiful city in the day and by night. Neil & Mandy founders of Boatshed took a tour to the Boatshed Seattle office to see how the boat sales business was doing in the North West Pacific area.
Thinking about selling your boat don’t delay– boats are selling - FACT!
