    It is comforting to know that death was not a part of this story.

    Anybody notice the story is recent, but the burning occurred 2 years ago?

    I guess the point of the story is the law suit but they used the sinking as both a reminder and attention catcher.

    And I thought our local rag was bad... A gas powered meridian 341 a "luxury yacht"? And then they put a picture of boat twice the size??

    The Daily Mail is probably the worst and most inaccurate rag produced in the UK.

    Thirty years ago it was quite good and I have had photographs published by them. Now, I wouldn't go near it with a barge pole!

    Not yet being a boat owner, I didn't feel as though I had the right to point that out, but I was thinking the same thing. At 34 feet, those staterooms must be like airplane lavatories.

    Hi,

    The Daily Mail can be re arranged by an anagram to read "A Hit Lie Madly"

    This might explain some of the story-lines.
