That spot is a particular favourite as there is a weighbridge and loads of traffic from Poole port , covers people travelling West from Southampton over the Forest towards Bournmouth and Poole also.
I would suggest anyone taking their boats down for work at Weymouth Olympics to be prepared for VOSA checks. As you say they are very active, I regularly see teams with police on M27 service areas close to M3 junction. As you say they appear to be targetting us
