    The “big old 24′ tub” at 1:00 is an Alan Buchanan designed Crystal class, built by Stebbings of Burnham in the 1960’s.


    Sir Peter de la Billiere sailed one to Aden.

    Built in the days before they realised how much GRP was “enough”.

    This is my favourite episode the Crouch at its best, but only till the monster stinkpots arrive, but I have always found the MB used by Fisherman seem considerate it the ones with the Flying Bridge (and lots of beer on board) which nearly ran me down as he was determined to pass starboard to starboard like he was on the A414….. im 19ft at 3knots, he was 50ft at 45knots and ten foot wake wave… still alway hope to see him impaled on the Bowsprit of one of Smacks if iam lucky….

    The signage for Skee Tex that so much earned your displeasure advertised the company owned by the splendid Roy Hart, sailor and adventurer. Among his achievements are contending in the Admirals Cup in his yacht “Victory”, rowing singlehanded ACROSS the UK from west to east and teaching me the elements of navigation on the back of a drip mat one Sunday evening in The Barge pub that I ran in Battlesbridge. He’s a real British Hero so please could you cut him some slack.
