    Wonder if I can find the perp and give ‘em a good toeing. Then wonder where I’m going to get another fully sorted Sadler 32 that needs sails, dodgers, spray cover and all the ropes currently in the shed.
    Be nice.

    I'd probably buy a Type 2 VW Camper for a change. I had a couple, years ago, and I'd still have the Drascombe for sailing.

    So far...

    * spend the money on first-class air travel
    * already given boat away
    * hunt down the swine to get the (already completely-sorted) boat back
    * more miffed about only getting the market (as opposed to insured) value than the boat itself (Scot)
    * breathe a sigh of relief
    * hide the money from wife and family
    * finish the one in the shed, blow the rest on raucous living... or the kitchen update
    * get a manky auld floaty something, or a camper-van
    * enjoy the lack of winter-maintenance stress... until the Spring arrives
    * buy a smaller, more expensive boat
    * regret arson
    * resort to violence
    * another camper-van

    Plan B...?

    Ah... that's why close perusal of Google Earth shows several rows of what I can now see are probably Centaurs and Konsorts in Area 51. The truth is out there...
