Now that's embarassing.
I've just spotted the Wail link was already posted & this site won't let me delete my post.
Perhaps a mod could oblige?

I made it to Wareham: it was on the way back that I asked for a tow! And that was because the engine was misfiring rather than because I had run aground .... although I was, admittedly, in very shallow water (but still afloat!) by the time you got a line attached to me. And it was a very little boat!

I couldn't see your face but did wonder if it was you. Thanks: I'd already been waiting some time and the traffic was showing no sign of a gap!
