new deckhand for lobster boat!

                        Shane who  lands fresh lobsters daily for the Vineleaf has found

                        himself a young deckhand,  for his  new creel boat.

                        Unfortunately Robin felt “wobbly” in a flat calm harbour,

                         it may be some time before he finds his sea legs!
