But it's not over yet......
I've got an Sr4 to get my claws into ...there will be other pots...( but none so fondly remembered ..or that generated so many posts...

Was there ever agreement on floating/sinking line or the ratio to use of each ?

It has all gone to pot when some mis-plaiced sole scuppers one's crust(acean) for a few (s)quid. What a (w)anchor. It is the crabbers/lobsterererers. If the pot's found it was them that moved it. Half half floating to sinking IMHO. Sinking half to buoy. I'm up for a scrap with some thieving, bottom feeding gypsies. Day or night.

I think you need to repeat the exercise but with an appropriate 'surprise' for anyone who lifts the pot. Any idea if a Pitbull can be trained to use Scuba?

There once was a Frenchman named Gérard de Nerval. This is what Wikipedia says about him:

"Nerval had a pet lobster named Thibault which he took for walks in the Palais Royal gardens in Paris on the end of a blue silk ribbon. Nerval wrote to his close childhood friend Laura LeBeau, recounting an embarrassing incident that occurred while on holiday in La Rochelle: '...and so, dear Laura, upon my regaining the town square I was accosted by the mayor who demanded that I should make a full and frank apology for stealing from the lobster nets. I will not bore you with the rest of the story, but suffice to say that reparations were made, and little Thibault is now here with me in the city...'"


"In an article about the life of Nerval by his contemporary, Théophile Gautier, Nerval is quoted as having said 'Why should a lobster be any more ridiculous than a dog? ...or a cat, or a gazelle, or a lion, or any other animal that one chooses to take for a walk? I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don't bark, and they don't gnaw upon one's monadic privacy like dogs do. And Goethe had an aversion to dogs, and he wasn't mad'

I phoned Cowes Harbor Commission today and they said that they have not removed it or had one handed in. Their consensus was that it had been taken

I think it's a sad day when your pot gets knicked, especially as we all spent time on this to get it right.
