    Am I the only one that that thought the Daily Mail standards have hit new lows? (Until they read the next sentence of course)

    I mean seriously: "a marina in Nieuwpoort". :/

    The boat appears to have mooring lines complete with a rubber snubber hanging off the bow also the main hatch and washboards seem to be closed up.

    Hopefully Mr Moore is happilly ashore somewhere completely unaware his boat has broken free from its mooring.

    I think Luminescent clocked that but was having taking the micky a bit.

    I did clock the washboards and strop in the pictures, like you say, hopefully he's visiting friends somewhere.

    Leaving the Ensign up seems an odd thing to do if you are mooring up.

    He may have forgotten to take it down, I have done that at least once.

    We’re not sticklers of flag etiquette in the Bristol Channel.
