      I've lost count of the number of times that I have heard the shipping forcast on Radio 4. I've often wondered about the places mentioned, so after a bit of internet research I now understand where the places are, how often the broadcats occours and lots of other interesting information.

   I've chosen a liner for the ship and printed letterpress the title and all the names of the various areas covered in the foreccast in the correct order of announcement.
