Can't believe the owner was driving, he knows the area too well.

Rumour on the Quay is that it was a "new" skipper, first day ...

She was due to be lifted out today to inspect the hull

Apparently it was another skipper and not Kevin.Solent scene had to be dry docked in S'hamton due to rudder damage at big expense.Kevin is not a happy bunny about it.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer chap though,it's a big shame
He always remembers you even if he hasn't seen you for a very long time and will stop for a chat.
I used to crew on passenger boats and got talking to him a long time ago as the job is similar wherever you go and Kevin's always remembered
