Peter belongs to: The Coble and Keelboat Society
Peter was brought up in Newcastle. His mother came from Seahouses and the family would holiday there. Peter's father made him a rowing boat when he was 11 and he spent his time in the harbour with his friends.
Peter was interviewed by Carl Greenwood on 16 February 2006. The interview took place at Ouseburn Heritage Centre and lasted 14 minutes and 58 seconds.
"Sounds with the boat? Yes, especially the one, this boat Iím lucky to have down on the Ouseburn"
Sounds with the boat? Yes, especially the one, this boat Iím lucky to have down on the Ouseburn, itís got an old, very old diesel engine, 1950s and itís, it has, itís silly to talk about engine sounds but it just sounds like a really old fashioned slow chugging engine and when I first heard that engine going it brought back memories- I remember all the old fishing boats used to have this slow running engine really, quite a different sound to the present ones, so I like that.
