If you're refering to myself and two shanty crews when you talk of Boy Scouts, Leadfingers then you and I have got some talking to do! Seriously tho', Bob Berry at Chippenham FF, had the idea about 5 years ago and set up two shanty crews ('names escape me at the moment) with me in my reefer jacket and peaked cap (genuine) fronting it, up with some 'hauling gear', a foremast, windlass and pump and everybody learned a bit more about working with shanties (and I don't just mean the audience!). Good fun!
