I'm sure I saw a white 4.7 being blown along on the flood water....can't be yours it had a frame mounts on it...

It was lovely out in the bay today...maybe not the warmest on the water!

There were Santa hats on show...but nothing like those pics.

Other boats near there had turned over and sunk on moorings. All peace and calm at the moment - but expecting the next low tonight. The jet stream is currently running at record speeds – up to 300mph! Next gale may not be as bad as forecast but have strapped everything down again as I am sure it will be rough. Beaulieu River was deserted except for Simcal and a mate – on the other hand did not hear any arguing – so perhaps it wasn’t him.
