What floating objects have you picked up last year ?

What floating objects have you picked up while out and about ?

Here is my tally for the year

5 x Avian Bottles
2 x Fishing Trawler plastic fish containers
3 x Footballs
1 x Womens Bikini Top
3 x Good size bits of tree trunk
1 x Rugby Ball
3 x Flip Flops
1 x Childrens Inflatable Dingy
3 x Buckets (Childs bucket and spade type of bucket)
2 x Large fendors
1 x Broom

Best place for balls is just off Shell Bay near Poole Harbour, I think the current grabs them and off they go.

Any more unusually Items ?

A dead Seal with a blue antifouled (not mine) head :gulp: in the Tamar from a 3.4m SIB, does that count ?

Other than that on a 6M Rib we moved a large tree trunk (about 8ft) floating down a small River (Plym) which becomes a dedicated Ski Zone

Still waiting for any Bikini tops though

Funny how it's not often the same pair of shoes ever get washed up on the same beach,
There either all right footers on one beach or all left footers on an another beach. Lol

Standing on the pontoon (does that count?) when an odd shaped bottle floated by. Turns out it's French and from the 1780's!

Sadly not worth a fortune - even worse, NO WINE!
