Nah, not a matter of naming and shaming just the normal gossip which goes on on the forum.
Besides, who collected the image anyway and who gave it to the press, it may well have been the owner (I can't make out a dingy on a davit) You can get a good group of rapt, bar room, listeners with Kimberly's stories (am I screwing up in suggesting that the skipper
