The punt had an irritating seal encounter lol bet Christmas. It appears it was looking for a hammock and made do with the punt cover.

During its mounting and dismounting, it managed to rip the washboard off and bend a load of the stainless brackets so my eldest son and I had to go down at high tide and bail the punt out and recover it!

Wow! Just Wow!

Read Colonel Hawkers diaries when I was a youngster. A fascinating read of a past era of punt gunning and game shooting.

I take my hat off to you.

P.S By the looks from the mighty explosion it could easily be taken for a rapport from HMS Victory were she still live. :lol:
