sad news Swanland
2 rescued, 6 missing at this time. Hull cracked and vessel presumed sunk off N Wales. Our near neighbour in the dock in Cumbria. We moved for him on Friday in case he got blown onto us as the pilot took him through the lockgate.
Took an hour or so to lever him out of the dock on with a very strong sw wind pushing him onto the quayside and a rope to the opposite quay trying to winch his bow into the weather. Once out, and in ballast he was making 3.8knots into the wind and being tossed about like a cork.
Our thoughts are of course with those who were onboard and their families.
