Anyone know where I can get one of these jackets in the UK??

They be pretty good for the summer as my survival suit tends to get a bit warm in the sunshine!

Which part of "throw me the mooring line" didn't you understand!?

Funny thing about the Sub was I had no idea of the length of these things!!
Had seen a few old diesels tied up dockside,but they dwarf in comparison.
You can see below this one sandwiched between the tugs and the bow still sticks out well ahead of the tugs.

Manny not much left of the season if you want to get out and catch the migration.Let me know if you are out anytime and will try and get some photos of your boat.
cheers Dal
