I've not been myself yet, and I'm unlikely to do so while we are under house arrest as we are at the moment. However it lifted my spirits to find out that Mike Yates recording of Johnny Doughty's singing is (and probably has been for a good while) the back drop to the museum. I only met him once but I'll bet there are a few good memories from others to share here.

A good few years ago when I was in Brighton I went into the Fishing Museum. It is housed in the Arches where the old fishermen used to store and mend their nets, and where Johnny Doughty leant a number of songs. And I was surprised to hear the Topic LP of Johnny being played. Very appropriate, I thought.

I saw him at Sidmouth for several years. He always seemed to be singing "The wreck of the Northfleet" whenever I walked in! Funny how coincidences like that leave you with lasting memories of people.

When living in Kent, in the mid-80s, we picked up Johnny in Rye & took him up to the excellent 'Empress of Russia' folk club in Islington- we'll have a 'good old flanagan' he said
   At one stage a pint of 'treacle' (his word for Guinness!) was spilt behind him- my wife Francie grabbed a mop from the bar & stood mopping it up behind him- he didn't see this but she did it in rhythm to the song & there was much giggling in the room.

He turned round, smiled & grabbed the mop & said 'I'll just swab the decks' & carried on with the song.
A lovely man, fine singer & always great fun....

Learned the song 'Heave on the trawl' last year, from his singing of it on an album on the Veteran label.

Lovely song, kind of bittersweet; a song about hard work and how it shatters any romantic illusions about the freedom of being on boats on the water now that I come to think about it. Guess that's why I come back to it and find something moving and lyrical in it.
