We picked up a mooring in the bay after clearing customs and rowed ashore for a pint and oggy. Actually several pints and an oggy, which is a cornish pasty (meat, potato and veggie pie) for those that have not been in these parts.
When we returned to the dinghy several hours later, we found that some kind soul had found some old sisal rope and extended our dinghy painter by about 20 feet. Coming from the Caribbean we knew nothing of what the tides can do.
Our dinghy was high and dry on the mud about 12 feet below where we had tied it. Had they not extended the painter, it would have been hanging 12 feet in the air from the top of the steps.Howard [ Just Imagine ] 14-Aug-1981
