APS? “Well, you can’t expect them to be Bird Protectors all the time.”

Yes, its strange how often it appen's that people ca'nt seem to get their word's apostrophes' in the right place's.

Back to wreckers and sharks: we, unlike the Teasel, did get to Norwich in our bilge-keeler 'Lillie of Pin Mill'. There we noticed the mooring bollards Norwich Yacht Station have steel loops welded to their tops. A Broads Authority guy told us to thread our mooring warps through the rings and take the ends back on board. Otherwise, at closing time the local Owdons (and Hullabaloos?) from the nearby pubs might cast off you off. Presumably they don't go as far as cutting ropes...

We moored elsewhere and had a quiet night. :)
