Mousehole, Cornwall

Whilst taking a stroll along the harbour i noticed a small 6-10m fishing dory secured to a bouy within the harbour wall with a P&O flag hanging from the rear....anyone know who this belongs too??
I know that Ian Biggar & Jacko used to hail from this area...but don't know if it is their sort of thing.... too cold for being out in a small boat!!Especially Jacko in his SPEEDOS!!

I would bet on it belonging to Geoff Pappin ex Canberra PO.
Think he was from there but Paul Lightfoot would know for sure as he hails from Cornwall.

This is definitely Geoff Pappin's boat. I sailed with Geoff, who was plumber, aboard "Himalaya" in 1970.
I'm still in contact with Geoff and only spoke to him a week ago.
