Rescue dinghy

I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned this before? Some years ago we were tasked to go out and locate a dinghy which had been spotted drifting by a passing yacht. It turned out to be this little plastic thing. Time passed and no one arrived to collect it so it has become one of the stations fixtures and fittings. It's useful too, not only for the crew to get out to their own boats on moorings but also for when we tow casualties in and put them on our mooring. My kids like it too as they can play inside without being told off.

Sadly, the dinghy next to it is no longer with us. During the winter it was washed away in a storm while not tied up (not sure who was responsible for that - Matt)! So if anyone knows where Martin can get another small dinghy he would be most greatful.

On a separate note, spare a thought for Becky who is having a operation on her Knee today. Something to do with a crucial ligament I think so let's hope it goes well.

It's also nick's birthday so happy birthday Nick!!
