    There is clearly some competition for Gammon of the Week going on here.

    I'll happily be Gammon of the week if you agree to being a Conspiracy nut careless with other peoples' property ' - you're also first to use potentially offensive names, I wasn't.

    Iím not condoning their actions as Iíd be annoyed also. What Iím trying to find out from one of the forumites is the supposed damage. Iím a local and heard of no damage what so ever. The chap on here saying there has been damage has spoken to the supposed victims of these pirates but wonít or canít I suspect forward and evidence what so ever.

    I don't see why you are surprised as any damage involves the identity of boats and maybe owners, could well be an insurance or even police case in the unlikely event plod could get off their chairs - if I knew of such damage I wouldn't publish details either and if my boat was victim I'd appreciate discretion.

    FAir enough. Thatís your view, but if my boat was damaged Iíd want as many knowing just in case someone had seen it. A bit like mentioning what goods had been stolen so others can look out for it.
    I am surprised that being a local Iíve not heard though. Usually news like that travels like like the wind.

    Ok, here's an offer. Tomorrow (Friday 16th August) 18:30 I'll be in the bar at the RCYC at Greenbank. Free pint to anyone who pops in and claims first hand knowledge of damage from XR. I'll be wearing a pink tie. Bet nobody does...

    To be Gammon of the Week is to make yourself as evolutionary and culturally irrelevant. Are you really sure you want that label? I wouldnt.

    Then you would have been prosecuted.

    Except it's not a political movement, is it?

    No it doesn't. We have not even beeen told what the alleged damage was. Bent stanchions? Damaged aerials on the pushpit rail? Fender step fallen in the water? A couple of details like that would have made DF118's (or whatever his catchy handle is) post seem a little more convincing, wouldn't it?

    As it is, I simply don't believe him.
