Am over in New York and Sandy is a big one and took a sudden and unexpected turn to the left and made land fall about 150 miles South of the prediction.
This may have had an impact on this sad event.
There is no way I would have wanted to be at sea in this, but then I had a choice

VERY nice choice of boat Gilles. Very few of us have the 175hp.

What colour is yours? I assume not cardinal yellow like ours.
Very distastable post by Humber... a ship has been lost and lives and you want to discuss tube colour.?????

Unless H was assuming that they were all on lifeboats and the ship would survive. As was hoped. Also posts run up on you sometimes.
