It was a very pleasant evening -a great clear sky and calm water. I said goodbye to Avocet at about 10.40 just off Christchurch. Only to hear a call for assistance from CG to a broken down fishing boat in about the area Avocet was passing.....
30 seconds later I hear him offering to assist said boat ' Jessica Rose' .......
I expect he is now just about getting in having towed it into Poole harbour, hopefully to gratefull thanks from the boat in trouble( having avoided the two rather large fast ferries that were going in/out at the same time !
Another late night out on the water for David - but well done, no-one else except the RNLI was going to do it . I was temped to head back out but reckoned you could manage a 21ft fishing boat tow by the time I had got there.
