Too right! with a sharp beam sea running, it would have been interesting... I didn't have the correct tools to do a prop change (which I will have in future!) although i did have a spare prop (huh, not much use without the spanner
) However, I do now carry a bivvi bag - as recommended by some other RIBnet members (I think it was Garygee and Stuart McNamara) and will v soon have several spare split pins and castellated nuts. Lessons learnt, and all that!
