Marine artist Dick Everitt has been bringing boating dramas, mishaps and howlers to life for decades through the PBO Learning from Experience pages. Each painting depicts a true-life nautical adventure.

Send us your boating experience story to and if it’s published you’ll receive the original Dick Everitt-signed watercolour which is printed with the article.

You can buy A3 prints of the pictures in the gallery, or even the original paintings (individually priced). Call the PBO office, tel: 01202 440820 to find out more.
