Death of a Kingfisher 20 and More Boat Clearance.

This is all that is left of the Kingfisher 20 that foundered at the top of the harbour, the one I took the video of.

The last time I saw it, the boat was on the beach at Eastney. I was walking down the beach yesterday and came across the remains after it had been cut up.

Also the pile of old boats down by the bus stop at Eastney have been cleared, That's around 4 boats gone.

You can see the harbour clearly now, no wrecks in the way.

Also the big abandoned fishing boat by the ECA slipway has been taken away by the Harbourmaster. They took it last Sunday.

This weekend I spent time chilling on the boat on Saturday but the weather was a bit too unsettled on Sunday. I woke up and it was raining, so I didn't go down to the boat jumble at Littlehampton.

No boat stuff as I decided because of the unsettled weather to stay at home and do aquarium stuff instead.


  1. Yeah - I stayed off the boat and did pub stuff instead.. :o))

  2. Hi Mark.I've just found your site, great reading and an ethos I can fully relate to. Take a look at, you may see a few similarities in our approach to sailing! Keep up the good work. Steve.

  3. Thanks for the comments Steve. There are quite a few of us out there. Its nice the internet allows us to network and see we're not alone despite the boat industry's attempts to make us pay top money for everything. :-)
