Those were the days!
I had a boat moored diagonally opposite near The Rowbarge Pub and lived aboard from 1975 until 1977. The Outrigger was the place to be especially in the summer. The turnover of bar staff (always barmaids) was phenomenal. Roy was an amazing character. He had a boat, 'Michaela' moored outside. Spent a small fortune there drinking with Chic Woods and other friends. The beer was 16p a pint back then! Sad to hear it has been demolished.
