Snoopy

Some of you may have seen the BBC coverage on BBC South Today last week about the Snoopy Sloop attempt at getting a small robot boat across the Atlantic .
Robin is an old friend and has run into problems with Snoopy who seems to have gone ashore around the Needles.

I was hoping to mount a recovery but a combination of gout and the boat being out of the water have made that hard for me .
I suggested to him a post on Ribnet may help.
This is the link to his website and all the info is there .www.gpss.co.uk/autop.htm
It may appeal to Western Solent members who have a boat in the water .

It's a pity that the deadline is Friday. If it was Sunday we might have been able to get a rescue fleet out there en route (sort of!) to the Folly.

I hope they do manage to find Snoopy
