Fantastic Post

Full marks for posting this account...we can all learn something from these occasions and NONE of us are perfect (I'm still striving to be adequate!)


Are you part of the Solution or part of the Problem?

Good comments gtflash. I've mentioned it a few times on this forum...being out on the sea under pressure gives a person brain fade.

It also answers those folk who reckon they can't see a use for radar on a rib.
