Well I almost felt sorry for the guy l last week. I could see he gets caught out. His electric fail and maybe he was plotting on paper but not enough to be sure he wasn't gonna crash into something so he calls for help. Mayday seemed a bit much but if he drowned everyone would have been saying why not hit the big red button sooner.

However it seems the guy must quite like the red button...

Out maybe the new lifejacket and flares meant he couldn't afford fuel
