The Gulf Stream is switching off so in a few decades we (in the UK) will all need snowmobiles in the winter, COOL!!! (no pun intended)

Yes I remember this - I think there were actually some aerial footage of the upturned hull on TV - the thing was plastered in barnacles!!!

Also quite common to find things like palm trees and coconuts washed up on the west coasts from time to time!!!

"Let's find it"

Yo nobstick, yer track record of finding a "mystery" hull, or a set of "lost" moulds hardly inspires me with confidence yer gonna have success this time.
