Ok. Let's examine that statement shall we? The boat was to go to a charitable cause, yes? So the best way to get the boat to this cause in the best possible condition with the least amount of “wear and tear” would be how? Use it as a reason to “do a trip no one else has done before”, or snuggled up inside a container ship?…. Cash or Glory? What’s the big difference?

Yes! Had a great holiday thanks... bit windy, but I think you might have guessed that
Well, the two incidents that I've witnessed recently were as close to home as you can get... both on moorings/anchor.. oh? ..and both owned by the same bloke....
