Charity shop bought book, Photographic Annual 1978, has photos of a merlin going down the mine at Salcombe. Sail number is 2486 (I think). Anyone any idea who the culprits are? They seem to be entangled in a mooring line.

The 1978 YB records the owner of MR 2486 "Troggle" as P. Clewer of Broxbourne SC.
The 1979 YB shows a change of owner to M Smith of Boston SC.

Ex Merlin
From around that time, I remember a sequence of photos in Y&Y of an out-of-control Merlin under spinnaker taking out a chap rowing a tiny tender.

Fuming 2986 would be a more likely suspect

I think the guy in the tender was Mike Banks, I'm sure I was casized in the background, I thought I had that issue still somewhere,

kite is up, but the boat is caught in a mooring line. old fashioned bouyancy aids (bit like jacko was wearing a couple of years ago) looks like a mail/female crew.
