Whats the most unushall thing you have seen out on the water

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

2000 ton of timber from when the ice princes capsized and the timber washed in.

We were jumping over pallets of the stuff.

Some good stuff then....I had over looked the twats...apparently this weekend , when Kiting at HW is a no no ...some one launched in car park & tip toed over the ridge...Could have added that one to my list had I seen it.
When did you see the Sun fish at Woolacombe too much wind. This year.. they do turn up from time to time , but if this year ,then thats quite a few sightings is it not.

Think it was about 4 years ago.
I also hit something in the water off southbourne 2 weeks ago that had a decidedly alive feel to it. Not the usual "clunk" you get when you hit something solid or wooden.

Other daft things was years ago i there was a chap in poole harbour who had made his own wipika classic copy out of the material used to clad building scafolding and pipe insulation for bladders all stuck together with gaffa tape. Genius! :shock:

Kiting amongst basking sharks is a fairly regular thing on Tiree in the Summer months. I also found a message in a bottle once about 300m out from Rio Jara in Tarifa.
