Fair enough, but are we talking engines blowing up or blocked fuel filters?

We have had one engine fire this year. We are not really in the habit of establishing cause of breakdown, but just getting them back to a safe haven. To this point may I point out that if you do require a tow from a lifeboat then you will be towed to the nearest safe haven and not your home port. Sea start will tow you back to your home port, as long as it is in their area.
