Excellent pics.


If you look at the price of a fish supper, and compare it to what else is on offer to carry out for the same price.
Now compare the sheer weight and volume of food you are getting.


A snappy meal from McSanders or Pizza shax, does not compare.

you are so right, Charlie and now is the time of year when even more IN Memorium messages remind us of the Real Price of Fish......God bless them all, and those who put their lives at risk to save them from the wilderness of the sea.
Hope you have recovered from Blackpool..........were you only down for the day.............I looked for you on sunday for another sail, but couldn't see you.Hope you are keeping well.
Neil.
