Who do you mink you are
(or, I don't mink that's funny)

As you may be aware, from the Commodores report in the last newsletter, Aquarius has been involved in all out war against our most unwanted members. These members arrived un-invited, took up residence in the roof, and come and go as they please. They don't sail, they are highly anti social and have never paid any membership fees. Who are they? Mink, that's who. Mink are small semi-aquatic stoat-like creatures. I say small but they can grow to the size of a cat. Anyhow the battle lines have well and truly been drawn up. What's left of the roof insulation has now been taken out, alloy mesh guard screens installed, power lines put in conduit and traps are about to be laid. I will keep you informed as intelligence reports are received from the front line or Ho Chi Mink City as it's being called. So don't mink or you might miss something. Who knows, if we catch enough of them, someone could be the first ever sailor to have a mink lifejacket.
