    Has anyone ever heard of a 'Shooting Clock'
    From: David Pike

    Well, the Bounty??? Jigsaw didn’t bring a massive response, even though Bligh was a great lunar man.  How about this?  With the 17’ Doranne (bought as a 27’ TIKI comfort substitute) came the clock in the photograph, except, it’s not a real clock.  It just has moveable hands and no mechanism, as you might buy for a child to learn to tell the time.  I intend mounting it on the forward bulkhead under the real clock where I can see it through the cabin entrance.  Her previous owner tells me it’s a ‘shooting clock’ from a trawler.  It was to remind the skipper or oncoming watch what time he shot his trawl.  I’m not sure whether to believe him or not.  I set HW on it to remind me when it’s time to turn and head back for Brough Haven.  We get about 1.5 hours either side of HW.  DaveP
