    I suspect there is little chance of finding it but i have informed MCA in case it is reported.
    We were without a dinghy for the rest of the time but managed to get lifts from a variety of kind people and the offer to borrow a spare dinghy from Scilypete.
    Pete was a fount of local knowledge and spent some time with us . Thank you Peter
    Shame you didn’t find me sooner that spare inflatable I’ve had for years could have done with an outing. Not heard of anyone finding it yet. See you next time you’re down and I’ll show you some good dinghy painter knots

    Who knows how the Cornish Piskies do these things? A year or so ago I left my mooring at Cargreen, River Tamar, and towed my inflatable down to Cawsand Bay. Just about to drop the hook, literally!!, and I looked back to see the dinghy drifting off towards the beach. 8 miles of towing, and then, whilst stationary, the Piskies were there and untied it!!

    The Cornish Pixies do weird things at Cargreen, they just wrapped my dinghy painter and all strops right round the massive mooring chain and seemingly plaited them, so strop will need to wait for barge to retrieve.

    I did once lose momentarily the dinghy from the boat I was in the process of buying. Unfamiliar cleat arrangement is my excuse, and seller forgave me as I bought the yacht. I now cleat on two lines in V to stop veer or escape when towing
    A boat is for going places
