We returned to harbour, had a brief chat and then headed out again. The tide had slackened a touch by then and it was a little easier going. 15Nm out, the mist lifted and the sea state improved. The next 30Nm were good going, things got lumpy again 20m off of Dartmouth and we were back to 24/25knts. Fully Gecko'd and togged up, we were of much interest to the holidaymakers when we pulled into to Dartmouth for coffee and cakes.
Big, big thanks to the CI guys for laying on a great w/end.
Where did you park in the end?

Thanks for your reply on that one Cookee. Jim organised Blackness Farm, great facility, narrow farm lane access.

Thanks to everyone for such a good weekend, we finally got back to East Cowes at around 7.30pm !

Picked up this rope on the way back doing 25knots, limped home on one engine at 6/8knts and this the **** that the divers cut away from my port prop on Monday morning 8.30am.

Seastart were brill many thanks to them, they suggested we grab a buoy off Yarmouth, but it was blowing there a bit and difficult to get close to it, then when the extending boathook extended too far and dropped in the water we gave up on that idea. Then anchored off Newtown Creek for Billy from SeaStart to get his underwater camera out and confirm we were snagged. He followed us to E Cowes and nudged us into a hammerhead berth there and sorted out divers for next morning. I was too shattered to even get drunk !
Just pleased to get the boat back on its berth at Island Harbour the following day, so I havent tested it out again at normal speeds, although steering feels very stiff and stbd rudder makes a groaning sound when steering.

Should I get the boat lifted and checked over and will I have done any damage to engine / gearbox / sterngear ?

I would have thought it would be very wise to have it all carefully checked over. Do you have a rope cutter? If so then hopefully no serious damage to engine or gearbox. Rudder could have had a bashing from the rope flailing around on the prop.

They don't necessarily stop it fouling your prop, but they do reduce the risk of damaging engine and gearbox.
