Master Frank – RY95 is a Manx built, half-decker fishing boat seen here berthed in Ramsey Harbour.

Master Frank is the Island’s longest surviving half-decker. Records differ as to whether she was built in 1893 or 1895.

Measuring 40ft overall, Master Frank was built by Messrs. Clucas and Duggan, shipwrights, boat and canoe builders and block and spar makers, whose yard was at the rear of Marsden Terrace in Ramsey.

I love these bronze statues which depicts Norsemen pulling on a rope, what you cannot see is that behind the glass and inside the House of Manannan and attached to the other end of the rope is the Viking Long ship Odins Raven which is being pulled onto shore by these Norsemen, if you have not visited the House of Manannan, believe me it is well worth a visit.

The reflection on the glass is the Creek Inn Public House and the Spire of the disused St Peters Church in Market Street in Peel.

The images were captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Whilst out for a walk today on South Quay we were lucky to spot the Steam Packets Fast Craft Manannan entering Douglas Harbour after returning from the port of Liverpool.

The lighthouse to the right of the craft is the Battery Pier Light.

The image was taken on my Nikon D80 SLR with a Nikon 18-135 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens at 58mm and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
