    On an android tab, top right should be the menu bars. Look for 'request desktop' and select it. That should give you the full version.

    wife's side of the family are all "boaty", her grandfather was a well known boatbuilder in Teignmouth, Devon(Morgan Giles Shipyard), her brother has just bought a speedboat and her uncle used to have a converted lifeboat himself, he's 90 now.

    It's Blackthorne Marina, Ringstead, NN14 4TU. New pontoons are going in so plenty of mooring space, Matra is 26ft and we pay 125 non-residential, 180 residential per month
