Last week's Blip was the oldest pleasure boat on Windermere and I find that this week's is the newest. It's looking like it's being repaired but actually its being built and has not entered into service yet. This surprised me when I checked, because last week I saw it motoring around and nearly running over a swimmer who'd overestimated his swimming speed.
Built by Dutch shipbuilders and takes the name from a previous Windermere MV Swift built 1900 and scrapped in 1999.
Very windy and wet out in Windermere this morning as Storm Ellen went through but surprisingly clear underwater over by Swift- extra
