"A specialist rig began six weeks of drilling on Friday, sampling the seabed in the harbour and in the Solent." It's just dogshit isn't it???

Dogshit and discarded plates and cutlery from the gangway staff.

Oh and a davit that I watched a docky spend 3 days welding and painting before I hoyed it into the oggin.

And a fridge.

Far more importantly, QHM will be very annoyed (not to mention British Gas and anyone else owning the pipelines).
Thats about the only chance of striking oil or gas there. I just wounder what beasties the dredging operation will unearth for the EOD boys. .
