Well... that's another story. Suffice to say he's being somewhat unrealistic about the 'what' (a yacht) and stubbornly refuses to listen to anyone who says anything negative-including 'you'll either drown or be towed in by the RNLI'. Keep an eye out on 'Mayday Mayday'. No, I'm really not kidding.
Conversations so far have gone:-
'I can motor around everywhere with the mast down because I can't sail'
'My mate can build me a radar set-he's good with electronics'.
'I can live aboard for free and anchor anywhere I want so I don't have to pay berthing charges or harbour dues' (the middle of Poole Bay was one of his preferred locations).
'It won't be cold living aboard it in the winter if I bring it up to the top of the Thames'
I'm bored of telling him not to be f****** stupid.

Errm... The local canal isn't open to vessels (it's only part restored) and the fishermen called the police, who told him to remove it.

He can't. I think he's planning a tiller extension.
Incidentally, it's in someone else's garden in the pic.
