Well that was a short holiday wasn't it!!!
P.Nap to Menorca. (Life's a reach & then you gybe)
Everything was going rather too well, managed to get half way before the engine started playing up. (No wind at all) every minute or two the revs would drop before recovering and occassionally stopping altogether.
Initially we thought we'd got something round the prop. After 2 1/2 hours rolling like a pig waiting for dawn to arrive, one very brave soul swam under the boat, de nada [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
Slight southerly wind, so decided to turn round and head back. Actually had a lovely sail, saw 2 sperm whales & a 20 min display courtesy of a pod of striped dolphins.
Then picked up a strong wind warning NW'ly decided to use the engine and run it at 1000 rpm, it was still fading but didn't cut out. Anyway we got back and here we start...... Very, very depressing. Hopefully if we can get it sorted we'll set off again.
