Yep, always happy to share. Have to say though that as time has gone on, I've grown up a bit and am more akin to a steady beer in a couple of destinations. Eg Anglesey cruise we had one at Conwy, one at Holyhead and a cool bottle on board as we passed through the speed zone at the end of the day. 3 in 8 hours I am happy with.
In times gone by we certainly used to have a steady flow and then moor up. I think it was a habit learned from parents, unfortunately they used to drink a lot aboard fishing boats. I guess tolerances and also the speed we move at have changed. As we didn't have to drive at the end of day, it was easily done though.
over the last few years I have become far more aware of the dangers and responsibilities. Having a family does that I guess! I look back in horror at what I did in my 20's, though I guess most of us do.
The one time I've hit a rock, platters by the bridge, was in my 20's, under the influence, where I'd misjudged the tide. If I'd been sober, I'd have been fine, luckily no one was hurt, just a snapped skeg. You live and learn.
