    1983. We took both our inshore lifeboats over and moored on the outer pontoon. Managed to get quite a few bargains for the boats plus a huge discount on a new full wetsuit (in those days we wore wetsuits under our all-in-one outer suits).

    I must have been reincarnated because I'm living the life of Riley.

    Sometime in the 1960s! Can't recall exactly when, but late 60s.

    Not the first time, but in about 1983 I brought a Dedrek Kelsall 40' cat round from the Hamble and moored it in among the derelict wood piles just off what is now Mayflower Park...... then rowed ashore into the show.

    The security nightwatchmen had no orders, so they were quite happy with us coming and going for a couple of days....
