Hi Dan,

Ok, got to laugh at that one

The reaction from your posting has been very positive and sincere. Although not sure if my 'roughty toughty boat' being mistaken for rich's boat is a compliment or not.

For your phone and camera is it just wet or is it terminal. A good squirt of WD40 usually cures most things.

Tim'mers.

Dan you could try putting the camera in the airing cupboard. My radio fell in the bath and looked well dead but after 3 days was born again and has worked OK since then. That if you cant get a new one from the insurance man.

Dry it out in the oven and then take it back to the shop. Done it with several (ok 5 then!) motorola phones and they always give me another one! Airing cupboard is also a good idea.
