We are in Abingdon, counting our blessings. There was an accident at Bourne End Marina, on the exact spot where 'dogma' is normally berthed. Their vintage tug is completely squashed. Could so easily have been us.

More pictures here.


  1. Thank god you were out!!! Doesn't bear thinking about.

  2. Thank goodness you and Sheena and Dogma were somewhere else mate. I've tried leaving comments on your blog before and they never show up. It seems like your blog authentication doesn't want to know me no matter waht I try! I'm going to try this one more time.

  3. Indeed. nobody wants the river inside their boat. We've been incredibly lucky. Not very deep there, the tug is sitting on the bottom. But it would have ruined our day, for sure. Stupid position to put the lorry in, because there is a slight slope down to the river. They normally park up parallel to it. Thankfully, nobody was hurt.

    Sorry about that. I publish all comments I see, but it might take a couple of days for me to log in and do it. Deffo, published everything I've seen from you. Regards to you and Les.

  4. @ Doug & James. You too guys. Thanks.

  5. WOW! so glad it wasn't Dogma!

  6. Hi Graham. We're quite relieved too. Must be good karma on the dogma. :)
