Spent the morning talking with the skipper of the boat that will become the symbol of the Ship from The Ancient Mariner in Cardiff Bay on May the 15th at noon.

I wanted a ship that could carry something of the feel of David Jone’s wonderful engravings for The Rime of The Ancient Mariner and started a search three years ago wondering where such a ship could be found…

Next weekend the ship comes to Penarth Marina to be dressed by students from Cardiff met University as a symbol of the destructive and creative forces in Coleridge’s great poem.
