Either my old memory is playing tricks or an identical occurrence took place at Reedham some twenty years apart. One time in the early Nineties I remember mooring for the evening outside the Pub (Red House?) alongside the Sugar factory at Cantley it must have been around October as the factory was belching out stuff from the chimney. I noticed a Coaster tied up at the plant, in the morning the Coaster had gone and as we watched breakfast tv there was a report that a Coaster had damaged a hire craft at Reedham from the report I could see it was an Aston Boat and the family sleeping on board had had a lucky escape. Ah,I thought it must have been the very same vessel that was moored in front of us. Today I found an old report of the incident but it said it happened in the Seventies and the damaged boat was the Aston Penguin could two Aston boats be that unlucky at the same mooring spot. Tell me I'm not going mad
