Ooops

Two nights ago this was listing Starboard side, told Port Solent who informed me it was on the Sailing Clubs mooring piles and nothing to do with them. Spoke to the Sailing Club who said they had notified the owner, and it was his problem........ shame as 2 nights ago it could have been easily recovered and towed ashore. However the following morning it now looks like this

I will sort one out tonight, mainly just the top of the bow floating, its probably only in about 8' of water so I guess the stern is resting on the bottom. Apparently the owner was made aware of it when it started listing, so my guess is it could be an insurance job, cos I know if it was my boat listing I would be down there pronto to sort it out.

About 150 yds. You can walk up to it from the shore, you would be up to your knees in mud mind you so not advisable.

It's when you have too many pints and lean to one side and go into the ladies instead of the gents.
