GUEST,Anne Croucher Lyr Req: Haul Her Away (Maddy Prior) (12) RE: Lyr Req: Maddy Prior's Haul Her Away 12 Aug 04

The coastline was clean of the Tory Canyon oil spill when we arrived, just about, there were small blobs left under rocks - but the sea was clear and the sand was just sand - life was almost non existant - but there were just a few plants animals left - or perhaps they had been brought in. visiting a few years later there was little evidence of the mass extinction - but it must have been horrible to see everything lying dead and oily on blackened beaches.

Cheerly man is a different but related shanty - I used to use that for the main sail hoist and Haul em away for the fore sail, as there is a slower larger pull in Cheerly man and Haul em away is more suited to the faster lighter work of a fores'l. It was just me and a small yacht, but it was helpful to keep the rhythem slow enough to get both sails hoisted and still be able to walk back to the cockpit.
