    Was impressed by the operator's approach, and how quickly the LB's were on the scene.
    We had a Finnish friend with us, who had never been sailing before - it raised a smile (after we knew they were safe) at how, when the skipper was told that a lifeboat was on its way and would be there within 10 minutes, he said in a relieved and polite tone, "Thank you very much."
    I am not young enough to know everything.

    I still haven't learned exactly where she went down, ie hazard or not ?
    In 13 feet.

    thanks, that's exactly what I was concerned about ! Probably enough clearance over the top but I'd rather not experiment.

    I'm sure it must be a good idea for everyone to recover her asap...

    I would have thought that with 1000 litres of diesel on board the Portsmouth Builders Brigade on their jet-skis will have her moved pretty quick!

    Here's a longer video of the whole thing:



    'Interesting' boarding @ 0:11 and also the first fisherman getting off @ 0:55. Just shows how tricky it would be say at night in a hoolie.
    Are we there yet?

    Default Never leave a man behind - Semper Fi ?!

    I was struck by how rough it looked; being a photographer I'm all too aware that what seems significant weather & waves usually looks much less on film, so it must have been rather lumpy - note the ILB couldn't stay alongside.

    I'd love to hear the radio chat ( I'm hoping there was one ! ) on the lines of 'we're b*****g off at high speed while leaving our chum on the sinking boat, please be so kind as to pick him up from the 'oggin' !

    Solent C.G. are advising that it's superstructure is visible at low water and that the temporary marks put down have disappeared.

    Be careful out there!
