Why is this site Victory4 ?

If you wondering why the site is Victory4 it is because Tom's Grandfather was a Salmon and Lobster Fisherman. His first working boat, a carvel built punt, was Victory1, named after the training ship he started in the RNR in WW1. The punt was old when he first had it and was eventually replaced with a clinker built rowing boat Victory2. A while after his death in 1963 my father sold Victory2 because of the maintenance as she was only used when we were on holiday, and replaced her with a fiberglass bulit rowing boat Victory3. Alas I have no boat but this website is my vessel of choice for telling our story, hence Victory4.
