Interestingly there doesn't seem to be such a thing as a Cuckoo dinghy...

Unless this is what you call a boat that has been left abandoned in your berth at the club and ends up taking up all your time in the spring making it ready to sail.


...could this be an exotic name for a MOGO?? :P :wink:

Heard one last Monday morning at 0500 as I walked down to the boatyard shed to get another coat of varnish on*. before going to work... far side of the river, in the trees on the Sutton shore just below the Sutton Hoo burial mound. Noisy blighters, aren't they?

*How's that for keen! :wink:
