    Default Fishing gear

    Last Summer's cruise was delayed a day. On leaving Port Edgar the tiller threw itself out of my hands with huge engine vibration. I stopped the engine and the racing safety boat came alongside and towed me back to a safe berth. The following day a diver hauled a retired lobster pot and some net and about 30 foot of BT blue rope from the prop.

    Couldn't identify the source.

    The Forth has quite a bit of jetsam and we have to keep a good lookout when sailing. Can't think there can be any solution. No legislation or enforcing will stop dumping of rubbish overboard. We all need to take care.
    Sleep is my way of making my particular form of inactivity even more predictable
