    The ocean going tug in this story was bought from HMRC auction by some Portland locals, and my good mate Dave, who has the relevant qualifications / experience, has been employed to deliver it here from Aberdeen :cool: and when he gets it here I'm gonna go have a look around on board :thumbs: "UK’s Biggest Ever Drug Bust" :eek:

    I sailed dinghies a bit as a teenager and recently sailed again for the first time in about 10 years - but in a keel boat rather than a simple dinghy. I really loved it - so much more relaxed than a dinghy that tips over if you come about a bit too sharply. It was some weird German type I haven't been able to track down since. Does anyone know any good small keel boats and where to hire them near London?

    I don't have any info on boats. But (was gonna say am in a similar boat) I'm also thinking about sailing dinghies again. I did it quite a bit as a teenager and now moving to the south coast I reckon I'll have another go. And a small keel boat sounds fun.

    Be interested to hear any tips on getting out in small boats near southampton.

    Thanks, it looks like there are a few of them around. Though maybe designed for racing? I have no urge to race, more kind of pootle around.

    There are lots of race series for them but tbh most keelboat sailing is club / race orientated in the UK. No reason why you shouldn't pootle away to your heart's content though :)

    If you fancy sailing something a bit bigger and can get to Weymouth, let me know :thumbs:

    Looks lovely. Thinking that me buying a boat is a five year plan though. Need to learn how to sale first. Plus save up some money :)

    Yeah, and his "motor yacht" is even more ugly.
    Glad it has been impounded, though. People need to pay their bills for work done.
