Went past sunseeker on Tuesday, they have put scafolding all round the boat and erected a cover so you can only see the black hull and not the burnt superstructure, a nearby sunseeker was having it's fire sprinklers tested I wonder if that is connected..ho ho

'if' it was lighting it would be covered. I think this would be the rumour mill starting up.......sunseeker have thier own specific scheme through colemans....individual boats on 'sunseeker shield' as well as thier own bespoke commercial policy via colemans.

Was on an electronics installers course today (I get an NMEA certificate and everything!) - the rumour was it was a tin of acetone and a heater, the first thing the night watchman knew about it was the fire engines woke him up .......................
