    Brings back happy memories✔️

    By the flag it looks as if she is underway, heading west off the Hamble, with the previous owner’s crew‼️

    Given the reputation of some of her crews (not mine Gov), it might be a good idea to change her name to something like - UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT❓

    Don’t want men in black hats climbing aboard and reclaiming her for Queen and Country.

    ps Why am I up at this time❓

    The crew have just advised we are dragging - WE ARE NOT

    Not my picture. It was used by the brokers and I suspect it was taken on the delivery trip to Lymington. I am old fashioned and I never get under way under motor with the mainsail cover on and without an anchor ready to drop. Comes of having grown up with an earlier generation of engines...

    OK seriously I can see looking at any detail of the boat that the Joint Services people know exactly what they are doing and she was handed over in very good order. I can also see that pottering round to Lymington with a crew of three they could have got sail up in short order.

    I doappreciate the garden seat across the pushpit, though!

    I'll add my weight to keeping Kukri, great name, and fitting. You don't get it out unless you mean to finish the job.

    Blue JSASTC Flag rather gives it away.

    Sail up quickly?

    Army crew. Wouldn’t bank on it!

    Where do you plan to berth her?

    In the Orwell. Ideally on a buoy, but that is not proving a simple matter.

    A national monument.

    Wonder if she has been this way before?

    Get Wattisham to lay a special buoy for her and film your arrival (off the Naze?).

    I am sure the local press/TV will be interested in her arrival.

    She will be the talk of the river and beyond. Given her pedigree (and size) you could offer (paid) trips around the bay.

    Pin Mill? Also, IIRC don’t RHYC have some buoys near Clamp house?
    Pardon?

    Yes below Clamp House

    Yes, she’s been this way before. Foxes slipped her to replace the stern tube seal and have a video of this event on their website

    Too big for Pin Mill (max. LOA 39ft according to Gus). RHYC mooring committee have one buoy on the “B” trot, below Clamp House, of suitable size, but FARAMIR is on it, and they don’t want to lay another because it was so much trouble. They suggest laying another above it - Tam is happy to do it but the Ipswich Harbour Master isn’t interested. Asked SYC ages ago about their buoys - no response.

    Well, I’m not in a hurry - she is staying in Lymington for the winter...

    What's the Harbour Master's beef?
    Pardon?
