Third theft I think.  

The boat at Stokesby is well and truly sunk now with the high tide, the cabin windows are below the water, and, just the very top of the cabin is showing, with water washing over it..  

Saw it today, sorry state of affairs.  Nothing seems to be leaking from it though, so no environmental worries.

Apparently it had changed hands and was moored down stream from Acle BridgeOne of our members .Captain Josh used to own her,hence the name I would think.John is quite sad about it and has offered to help raise her along with others if needed.Very sad ,to much of this happening now days.!
