 I think most of us were after the size of the portions dished up at the Marine that night...

 Apparently the Manx cod come in that shape. It enables them to swim round the island better.  ;D

Dear Stuart

I  would like to put on record that whilst I was able to eat the large Cod piece, and the mushy peas, I could not manage all the chips or a desert. This was a first for me, especially when not accompanied by my wife.

It was a shame that on Sunday afternoon I donated it all back to the Irish sea on the sea cat back to Liverpool. Every time I go on a sea cat I promise I will never go on one again. They always seem to break down, and in rough sea are stomach churning. Give me a cruise liner every time.

Thanks for that memory

Chris Thomas

Take it from one who knows Chris there is no " cruise liner option " the IOM ferries would not come under that heading ! Having been on many last boat home trips , believe me the sea cat is much the better of the two . By the way I guess you resisted the " desert " as it may have been a little dry ' ;)

A precurser to the recerculating amphibian that over millions of years morphed into the Scottish Mountain Haggis. So maybe rumours of Nessie are true too.....

Personally it looks more like an imported Australian Boomerang Pollock fillet. Rather confirmed by the fact it came back again. But I could be wrong.

So the Sea Cat is as reliable as a Peel then? I hope Root waved from his comfy aeroplane seat as he flew over. 'Show us your kippers!'
