Show us your flotsam :)

Inspired by a comment made by the Missus (thanks)I was wondering what people have found in the sea.
To date I have found:-
8 fenders
2 footballs
1 deck brush
2 baseball caps (still wearing one, lost the other)
2 horseshoes floats
1 baseball cap from Americas cup boat (not saying which in case they want it back)
1 set of sailing trousers (thought it was a body)


When I spot these things I treat them as a ‘man overboard drill’ and then keep them as a trophy. Des

What did you do when you found the horseshoe ring and trousers. This could start a new topic of discussion.

Funnily enough I did mention it to the coastguard but as none of them were marked and there were no reports of missing boats at the time they weren’t that interested. A lot of this stuff just drops of yachts usually during Cowes week. Des

A television (believe it or not some do float!!), assorted fenders, a beer barrel (ok that was in the river, beer didn't smell to good when we cracked it open) and a lifejacket.

Ah but is it flotsam or jetsam?

Found loads of bits over the season.

Fenders
Bimni frame work
footballs
semi deflated balloon
or and the odd PWC!

Regards
