DM - what are the straps for that run along the floor under the "tow straps"? There's obviously some similar ones which go over the top of the tubes (presumably to hold the tubes on in case of glue failure) - but these don't have an obvious purpose.

The long straps are used when haggis smuggling. The haggi go under the straps to stop them jumping overboard. Thought you would know that being a Scot.

Two errors in one post. Electronic malfunction in the data module maybe.

makes sense I suppose - I just put them in the anchor locker myself but I note that Avon didn't have the foresight to include one.

unfortunately the data module was made by Cobra - and like their radios its IP67 rating was somewhat optimistic, and its been raining a lot here recently.
