Yup.

First we had four members making offers on a fastfisher
Now a closet (or is that sail-locker?) WAFI
God help us if you go soft and start havering about Nelsons and Cabin ribs.

This forum is going downhill - too many Urges and not enough Purges...

LOL went to Poole took all day nice night out in the town but bit chavvy for me though .
Then took all day to sail back realised why I gave up sailing as takes so bloody long and wife likes to chat,she can't if the engines are roaring and it only takes a hour and a half on the V40
Am back on the Power this week thank god, running a PWC Instructor course and Powerboats at the weekend .

MAIB have primacy on any investigation and their evidence cannot be used on any criminal enq so police have to go over same old ground Maib have covered
MAIB is to look at prevention and reasons and not to apportion blame

That's them. I trust that the RNLI will be bunging a few quid into their collecting box!
