Dr. Paul Gainey was before our kid's time. However, I think he was a Penryn lad.
I'm assuming that your from a Naval family, boarding etc. Our's are day pupils.
Doc. Flood and Graham Baines may've been there in your day.
Mollers - Mr Baines was my house master in TC! Small world indeed. He loved his rugby I seem to remember - excellent house master - never told my parents when he found my stash of beers and "magazines"!!!!
Bob - Where abouts in Dartmouth - ex BRNC member here ;-) I was thinking about sailing round that way for a trip down memory lane. Is the slip next to the ferry (Dartmouth side) still useable? Spent many an hour down at Dartmouth arms, Seale & FBI drinking when i should have been revising for my finals......
You raised a good point re ballast up front - I think as Polwart suggested - I should try the boat without the free surface water issue that dogged my last voyage LOL. That might help.... I will research the dolefins as you suggest. I will look out for you around Dittisham/Dartmouth - perhaps a few beers on the floater is in order (guessing its still there)
