The opening title featured "the Flying Fish" a yacht owned by Tom Howard of the title, although it's starring role was short lived as I recall an early episode where Tom's son Leo went off in a sulk when it was announced that the Flying Fish was going to be sold to fund the purchase of the Mermaid (Elephant) boatyard
So imagine my surprise when I spotted this while rowing down the river, I guess it's the same boat fully restored after sinking during a collision a few years ago.
Have a look at the opening sequence from about 50 seconds in I'm pretty sure it's the same Flying Fish a Laser 28.
If you missed Howard's Way just or you want to get an 80's fix, the entire series 1-6 is available as a boxed set DVD on amazon.
It's "Howards' Way" and "Tarrant"... :) And it was Leo's sister Lynne who sulked. There is a group of Howards' Way fans still posting regularly on Twitter, just google "Howards' Way Twitter" to find and follow them. By the way, ignore Everton Howard's Way - they are football fans!ReplyDelete
