Back from the Indian Ocean. Reading this thread and seeing WAVEHUMPER aboard prompts a quick question.
When are you going to move that engine outta my garage, Stuart ol' chap? No big deal, but it would be nice to get old Landrover inside from time to time again.
Actually, this thread is an opportune place to talk about my close scrape with an exploding engines.
At the end of the week's diving from the Maldivian liveaboard - a 4-story wood and fibreglass streamlined monstrosity made in the islands - we left and the new punters moved aboard.
Next day, miles from anywhere the engine does up in a sheet of flame. The divers jump over board (well, the would, wouldn't they?) and the liveaboard sinks to the bottom of the oggin.
Close shave , or what? Could have spoilt what was a fab holiday for Diana and me. Guess it did for those who followed in our wake.
Glad to be back. Cheers for now....
