    NO
    Bouncing and bumping of the tender applying dynamic loads as it hanging about is gonna bend it again next time the metal will shear more and the “ cuts “ increase until it goes .

    It’s gonna need a temp ( get you home ) fix .

    Brace it with a couple of long shafted screwdrivers and a few jubilee clips .
    Or if possible flow cement or something that sets equally as solid into the tube and 15 cm above the fracture .

    I was in jest. Thanks for the advice though. I plan on just cutting the collapsed area off completely and filing two new locating slots in. I have spares davits back home. They're a bit rubbish tbh.

    You must be mad Bruce!

    Unless it's sunny I won't go to the boat. If I can hear the wind it stays on its berth!

    Go back? You off your trolley? No we are staying. Only one more night of this and we are home free. I've dug myself a nice little moon crater with the anchor now and providing nothing breaks we are good to rumble. As for where we will go tomorrow, I am hoping its South, ask me when I look at the Bar in the morning. If its white water over the bar, N. If its green over the bow, S.

    (But almost certainly not to Aberdovey)

    Pete, dont bring your boat to Wales if you plan to use it much then. Here you take every opportunity and make the most of it. 4 seasons in a day and the sun is always shining somewhere.

    I watched that, what boat was it? They did a nice job cleaning it up.

    Bet that prompted you to open your wallet for a change



    I do believe we have beaten the winds. They gave their last gasp this evening and blew out. Its gone eerily calm with the occasional gust. You should trust me more
