3 men and a sinking boat

Published by under Club Notices

On a beautiful early evening last Friday, it was noticed that SS2 was rather ‘squat’ in the water. Comparing her with SS3, which is hidden behind the Bosun’s Hut, it was clear she was sinking. Without hesitation and despite being in fine Friday night attire, Jeremy Sandford and Toby Speller grabbed some oars and headed off. Peter Thompson saw what was going on and joined them – rowing out to bail the boat out and find that a disused cooling pipe was drawing water in. We must thank the guys for their swift actions as SS2 would have been swamped by the next morning’s tide.
