more likely an abandon as if it were that bad you couldn't be towed by another for that distance. They'd run out of fuel.
I'm a chicken and pretty paranoid about being 30 miles offshore. Still debating the risk/reward ratio ......
HP the problem is that you have not been out with us very often so I guess that you underestimate the people your will be out with
As you know with me it was a broken saddle which is a rare occurrence with any engine but more so with racing boats I am lead believe. What happened to Neil can be rectified at a marina also more spares will be carried for crossings like the Ireland trip just in case.
HP sometimes in life you gotta take risks which is okay if they are calculated ones so wise up man and get out there with the gang and have some fun
