Island Harbour began life as one of the great English tide mills, the East Medina Mill. The original building was built on the site of today’s lock entrance in 1790 by William Porter, a baker from nearby Newport. At this time the Medina River was a mooring place for convict transports, and a story related in Albin’s History of the Isle of Wight published in 1795 tells of an occasion when Mr Porter's workmen were rowing down to work from Newport they were taunted with being bound for Botany Bay. In this way, East Medina Mill became known as Botany Bay Mill. However, a more likely interpretation is that William Porter supplied ship's biscuits to the convict transports in the river. Just after 1790 the banks who had previously supported Mr. Porter withdrew their funding and the business was forced to close. Thomas Porter died a year later and the buildings were left empty.

Though a fresh blanket of new fallen snow is beautiful, it can be a hassle if you’re a boat owner or a boat broker.
Seattle is a beautiful city in the day and by night. Neil & Mandy founders of Boatshed took a tour to the Boatshed Seattle office to see how the boat sales business was doing in the North West Pacific area.
