I

also am glad to support the RNLI, they have fortunately come to my aid this year also, although not in dangerous circumstsances, however it is my understanding that they are doing rather well for money. And I wonder if we should try harder to support our local rescue orginisations. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Also, Jools, do you think you could write an article on DSC stuff. How do you link up a GPS to a DSC. what a MMSI is and why you should have one.



Thanks

RE: The DSC thing,

Thats a good idea - i am often asked and had meant to write a short explanation my self, just not had time yet, so if someone else wants to do it great! Else when i do get round to doing i'll post it here!

I'm guesing all the people here know about the RNLI 'offshore' scheme (direct debit of money for a monthly donation).

Still shocked at the main purpose of this thread BTW!

Thank-you everyone for your kind and caring words. Fiona (my wife), Simon and I drunk copious amounts of red wine last night and we have severe hangovers, but feeling great to be alive. I have had the rib surveyed by two people yesterday and the damage is minimal, although some modifications will be required. Once this is all over I will hopefully be able to explain in technical detail what went wrong, I am just mindful of the fact that I do not want to say too much and cast the wrong aspersions on anyone or company at the moment.....you know what I mean?!

Thanks again

Glad to hear you and Fiona are ok. What a horrible experience.

I have to say though, those pictures are fantastic.

what can I say except to echo everyones sentiments and add my good wishes. That photographer is a star to keep cool and keep taking the shots in those circumstances - one picture is worth a hundred words!
