    Its that time of year when people who never normally anchor decide to venture forth and experiment with 5 m of chain in 5 m of water. Then promptly leave to go ashore for dinner. Surprise surprise the boats gone when they come back. Unfortunately I got hit by one last year. Asshole. No apologies, he blamed me for being in the way. Told me i should have got out of the way,

    Why do you ask such a stupid question ?

    Not a scooby, some of these boats that turn up July/August

    A couple of tides can twist a chain like that out round 21, swirls all over the place coming out of the guts.
    Ditto. Eddie took it all in his stride. No one hurt, no serious damage done. And the best thing was they didn't even get swept put to sea on the ebb tide. Amazing

    a frog Cat pitched up last month, did the usual right next to us whilst we were in town, As the tide turned he swung within 3 mtrs of us. He finally appeared after an afternoon on the other big cat between you and us. I politely said to him you are a bit close. He actually moved!
