“Adventures of an IMP” Part I: Beginnings

 Ship’s Log

      First voyage. 
    Whananaki harbour. 
     Just on low tide. 
No wind. No clouds. Perfect! 

Today was the first day that we attempted to row away from the desert island we were stranded on. We were rather unsuccessful; the Ship’s Boy had made a rope out of coconut fiber and had fastened one end  to a tree and the other end to IMP! IMP has not fully been christened yet as we had taken her out for a test run row a few days before she was to be christened (not the proper way to do things, eh) and we were swept out of familiar surroundings, onto this desert isalnd. Also, we have not and could not paint IMP on her keel or either side of her bow for lack of paint, plus, charcoal does not work, because it rubs off. We are sleeping under a sail and oar tent, (who knows what a sail was doing in our rowboat!), and are living on wild boar, wild vegtables and coconuts.

    I’m looking forward to following your adventures! I just bought a lovely book on “How to Make Books” which would be ideal for when you want to bind and self-publish your hard copy!!
