    Default Sad to see.......

    ....a mast sticking out of the water today on the South side of the Orwell, just about 250m down river from the bridge. Couldn’t see much at high water but the superstructure was beginning to show when we went past later and she looked well cared for.
    Pardon?

    Really sad, my mooring is about 10 boats away from this by hill buoy, we left our mooring and went past this in the dingy at about 4.30 yesterday afternoon, I didn’t notice a boat low in the water. Gutting for the owner.

    There was also a small red yacht blown off its mooring and aground near Stoke SC, we saw someone - presumably the owner - in the water alongside it at HW on Sunday. Hopefully it came to no serious harm?

    I passed it this afternoon and it looks as if it's sinking gently into the mud.

    I saw a red hulled sailing boat very close to the shore just south of the Orwell bridge on 1 May, with a chap apparently working on it; I think he was in the water at the bow. We were on the road the width of a field from the river, though.

    It is a bilge keeler, and was sitting in the same place quite close to shore today at LW, perhaps he has it there so he can work on it, rather than having been blown off a mooring?
