It's been Tangoed!

Andy McGhee's bright orange submarine during a summer storm on Fri 27th August.

It wasn't bad weather that sank it. He left his wallet on it by accident and the weight of it dragged it down over night.

Ha ha very good Zpannerz. It was actually the size of the fish that we were trying to pull in but it got away. In fact it was very much like the jaws scene when it bit the back of the boat off. There are a few drunken witnesses who can verify this story as they also had equally large fish that got away.

Hallo Sailor/Submariner!! Don't give up your day job. Tip of the day:- Faulty moorings cause so many sinkings:)

As one who has witnessed the sheer craftmenship and boatmanship of Andy's sailing and mooring firsthand, may I take this opportunity to wish him every success in obtaining his new craft for next year. And as you will all be aware of his bike, I'm sure his boat will be bigger, faster, and brighter than ever. I still think if we hadn't moved the carry-out to the back of the boat to crane those huge fish in big guy we would not be lookin at that launch now.
