    I don't think Romford has been in Essex since 1965. However On more mobo, speedy boat type subject, I was anchored off Osea island on a peaceful sunny Sunday afternoon last year and awakened from my post luncheon snooze by a number of speedy boats, of various dimensions, some with outboard motors the size of London buses, and eminating enough noise to silence a Boeing 747, and causing enough wash to to swamp the Isle of Wight. So like a Peter I think the Crouch is quite peaceful in comparison to the Blackwater, although of course I do love the Blackwater.
