about the buoys......

MeMe, Jono,

Check my occupation on user panel, our ops & control centre were aware that you had landed on our buoy almost immediately. All of our class 1 & 2 buoys have remote sensing and cameras! our OCC have just sent out descriptions to the local police etc. to try and identify the trespassers.....If you had stayed longer, our RRB would have caught up with you...big fines and criminal prosecution etc.

buoy jumping is a particulary dangerous (we get paid premium rates for the task)

Iv'e not sung like a canary, but watch your backs!

all our stuff is monitored.

Nick

You're 'aving a laff! The last large buoy i jumped into, yes into, was more like covered in seagull crap and made of rotting wood.

They made me do it, m'lud, they made me take the photo. It was their idea, m'lud, they said I'd fail the Intermediate course if I didn't, m'lud, honest.

So come on fess up is this a wind up or what????

If not - then I plead guilty on all accounts - but you will have to prove it...... No photo evidence Ha Ha..... (Well not in the public domain anyway.... Simon if you post it I will be most dis-chuffed).
