    Default Boats and Boating

    We have a very interesting Planes/Aviation thread and I know several members who have boats so how about a thread dedicated to boats and boating ?

    I'll start it off.

    We've just taken our 33 year old Cruiser out of the water for refurbishment this morning and last week we put her on a berth in Cobbs Quay in Poole in readiness for the lift at 08:30.

    Yesterday an awfully nice chap reversing his Sunseeker into the next berth demolished our Swim Platform !
    To be fair, it was very windy and he was very apologetic and immediately offered to pay for the damage.
    Having said that, the Sunseeker had twin diesels plus Bow and Stern thrusters so it should have been an easy boat to berth.

    Nevertheless, it could happen to anyone ! Just another job to add to the long, long list !

    She should be out of the water for about 5-6 weeks.

    PS : The lower picture was taken when we bought her. This morning the underside looked very different !
    Will post some pictures when I can work out how to get them off my Android phone and onto the PC.
    Bloody Windows !
