**** in Preston. My boat is facing West, and it's usually fine. Just got back from London to find half the cabin soaked.
If there's a particularly strong gust up her backside, then the hatch blows forward a bit. Not much, but just enough to open a small gap, which relentless driving rain can get in to.
Also, wind from astern creates a right racket under her tail.
Holyhead must be pretty grim at the moment.http://onkudu.com 4 years living on a 21ft boat. 1 month on a 32ft.

Boat on the moorings. Anchor cut through the line then drifted on the rocks and got trapped under the bridge, was then towed to the slip and sank near the slip

A truly dreadful sight. Deepest sympathy to her owner.
Do you know of any plans to lift her, or otherwise salvage her?

While i understand the loss of the boat is very unfortunate i have concerns that two trained men risked thier lives to try to prevent what is only a boat from sinking.
While i understand they may well have training to deal with emergencies they could not possibly fortell would could happen during the storm.
I would think in terms of an investigation to find out why these two men thought it was a responsible act to try to prevent the boat sinking during a storm and to re-train them so they understand they never put thier lives on the line for the sake of any boat.
