    That ship was in los chris harbour, we heard the captain say the head gasket had gone ?, we watched them tying up and i said to Janet their no sailors, more like keystone cops, what a shambles to watch, anyway another bigger war ship turned up 2 days later and dropped anchor off shore, the side opened up and a dingy was lowered and set off to the harbour, then another war ship turned up and they all set off to sea, with the gaurdia boat in pursuit,
    I thought it was all a bit strange, but i see some strange goings on in the bay, little yachts staying over night then small dingys going out to them at all hours, then when you get up they have gone,

    Val and I watched this ship being "pushed" sideways into a berth in Santa Cruz , we thought it was strange for such a small ship to need a tugs assistance

    They didnt know how to dock, we watched a guy trying to pull it to the dock all on his own , one of them went pissing when he fell over the rope , the guy in the paper today was the only one dressed like a sailor, the others looked like tourists, i know bugger all about ships but i thought something amiss here,

    Best thing those lads can do is quietly slip away during the next firework display. Show the Spanish authorities a bit of this

    That must be one of the top jobs in Guardia Civil on those boats, cruising around Canaries looking for something to do. Probably have to be a Franco relative.

    Watched some staff turn up in a new luxury car, got his kit out of the back and got on board, looked like there was a few days worth of clobber,, When they leave the harbour they dont seem in a rush, boats sound very powerfull,so they must like a drink,

    Big Gardner Turbo Diesels or similar. They dont do litres or gallons. 'How many tons do you want Sir?'
