1. We borrowed Rob Boden's Mirror Dinghy in about May 2004 or 2005 -- and family sailed off to WildCat Island from Holly Howe, about 300 metres from the Island I capsized when a steamer took the brisk breeze.
2 Wife was angry - She never forgave me and raised it in our divorce
3. I righted boat retrieved family - cold as hell and calmly announced that I had waited 35 years to go to island and I was going to island, of course boy scouts in plastic canoes ruined what was otherwise a wet cold and thoroughly enjoyable miserable day out
