That's awful. I assume it'll be replaced under warranty but that doesn't make up for all the worry, annoyance and additional expense. Hope Andy and Cyanide will be soon be home safe.

Thanks for all the updates Brian. Just back ourselves.

Sorry to read about the incidents.

Hope all is well with everyone?

Bad luck (again) matie.

I might consider accepting a broken scorpion in part exchange for a reliable outboard osprey !

Hope Andy made it back OK, don't fancy dealing with all that on my own!

Tuesday morning

Alderney lifeboat towed Cyanide back to Alderney arriving 1830 last night. Andy cold, wet and knackered having been towed back into the weather at low speed.
He stayed overnight at one of the lifeboats crews house-he runs a B&B.
This morning the boat is being lifted out and Andy will strip things down to find out what parts are needed. We then need to source them, have them delivered to Braye and then fitted and tested.
I gather that Hugo and Co. left the Revenger there as well, as they regarded it as unseaworthy, and flew home. Mark and Jon have made it safely back to Poole.

Hi All
Safely back in Alderney after a grim tow back (about 18 miles) into some pretty big seas The Alderney Lifeboat crew were superb and as a small measure of my appreciation I felt compelled to meet them all in the pub (after a hot shower and change of clothes) and supply them with ample supplies of (yes, you guessed it) BEER
Cyanide is beeing lifted out this afternoon and the drive beeing removed to carry out an assesment of the problem. Will know more towards the end of the day

Cheers

Andy

Good thing that the gang didn't drink Alderney dry then!

The alternative cruise to the St.Malo cruise

Just as well that the wee 6 mtr ribs decided not to participate. Most pleased however, that everybody got back home safe

The alternative cruise took place ; ie Tombouy joined Seahawk 2 on a trip to Brighton Marina for lunch on Saturday (no pictures cos forgot to take the camera) and the next day we hoped to cross the channel from Dover to Boulogne for an overnighter but the weather was against us so we opted for a Thames cruise with Mike C on Prime Rib II instead. This pleased our wives cos that appealed to them very much. Simmons0 decided not to participate on this one and gave it a miss.

We launched a Chiswick Bridge and went past the Thames barriers stopping for lunch on route. A very pleasant cruise indeed, unfortunately lots of floating debris so a lot of care and attention was needed when cruising at speed , specially down river.

Although the boat did have a small tube fault it was more to do with fatigue of the crew. Of course this was nothing to do with the 3am finish while being treated to free beer in the pub !

Regards

Mark

Also it's not his boat to worry about how to get it back!
Or I'm just a old cynic?
