Fourth and final tiny poetry film - Two Boats

Here's the fourth and last of the four little Loch Roe films Bill has made out of my poems. It started life as a concrete poem called 'Invisible', but nobody seemed to get it, so I changed the name to Two Boats, so you can guess what it's about.

They're both Bill's boats. The dinghy is called Ripples. The big one is his fishing boat, Vigilance (side on, she's just like a Chinese boot). Although his days of making his living in Vigilance are over, he lavishes most of each summer fixing her up to get through the winter. She's an old tender to the lighthouse supply ship, the Pole Star.
