Yeah, Lyme Bay must be a Torie Area what?
Yep let them Buggers have it,
My Goodness, wholeft this Tub go to sea if it broke up so easily.
At least she is sailling under a Brittish Flag as people furiously try to change her to Bermuda or some other outpost of convinence.

By the way is it possible to sail under an English flag or is it just British.
What about the poor Welsh, Scottish and Northern Ireland.
Are ye all tarred with the same brush.
I used to think English was a people with British being an establishment.
Whats it all about Eh?
Oh and what are ye doing to poor Tony, he looks 50 years older than when he started. You couldnt pay me enough to do the job.

Bet they'll love it an awful lot more than if she dumps the lot into the sea.
At least she isn't an oil tanker.

Just watched a BBC report on the container ship - apparently they are pumping thousands of tons of water onto the superstructure of the ship - remarkable.

On the weather front the winds are now only about 50 - 60mph but we have a hailstorm - wonder when we get the plagues of locusts? Frogs more likely in our bloody climate!!!

It does sound really bad out there at the moment - hopefully will die off a bit soon - some of the gusts are really prolonged and vicious.

Never used to worry about the wind until I got myself a boat - normally love it. As I said though it's fine at low tide!!!

Went down to the Heads earlier to get a few snaps - only a moderate swell of 4 metres or so, pretty poor after the 8 and 9metres+ that we've been getting recently
