Site design updated: 8 Oct 2020
I'm Greg Chapman. This site contains my boating biography. Started in 2008, it's been ten years since its last major upgrade, but finally, it is "mobile-friendly"! Scroll below the image to find out more.

The image above changes daily and is taken from somewhere on the site Very slowly information that was originally published on what was "The Blog" and now called the What's New page will be moved to the various sections of the main site. In future, the blog software will only be used to announce updates to the main site.
You'll find the site records exploits from my childhood days on the River Wey, in Surrey, through to trips aboard the canoe Diana and I bought recently.On the way you'll find reports of voyages aboard my SeaHawk, which I sold in 2018 after having her for 14 years. Just 17, was the first boat that I owned outright and was named Imagination when I bought her. In between I have been boating on the Canals of England and Wales, the Norfolk Broads, the rivers and dykes of the Cambridgeshire Fens and made the odd coastal trip too. You can access all these reports from the main menu.
