Following in the muddy footsteps of Nelson,Drake and Oldgit,who were all Medway men,Unit18 was volunteered to do safety boat duties at the Margate air show and very kindly invited me along for the ride.In the event we unfortunately had to to decline his very generous offer and stand on the quay side and record his brave departure by camera.

You could tie a bit of string on his tail and disguise him as a fender.
Unit18 should be on his way back by now,when the airshow was over he was not going back into Ramsgate but heading straight home,something to with Mondays weather forecast.

Yes and with impeccable timing managed to miss getting into our berth by ten minutes!
Did you see the airshow Fred, much better on Sunday, and to get overflown by the Lanc at about 100 feet! Brilliant.
Ooo.. you cheeky chappy,as you well know, Mrs Unit 18 got them in before we ventured outside, always leave them dangling till then as it can be a tad tight until out of the moorings. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

There was at one time a massive triumphal arch here with a enormous statue of some roman geezer standing on top that could be seen for miles out to sea.
Concrete foundations and remaing walls are still good after nearly 2000 years of english weather.
