Sorry only mentioned half the stuff.... from my experience the conditions were not that bad! All reports on the incident... PBO, Solent TV, have been bigged up a little!! as you would expect. Bramble met although a few miles off recorded F4 as I would have said. I think the boat caught us out & I wish I knew what it was... when the engine stalled she was so heavy at the stern the seas just kept plopping in. Jules is convinced I said " Dive Dive Dive" not Hythe Hythe Hythe during our conversations in the pub.

I took the control box apart & sprayed all the electrics & re-greased the box, in conv's with Suzi dealer he stated that all ECU's & CDI units are 100% waterproof... that apears to be so in our case! Only problem to note is the battery cable terminals rotted to shit in no time. Have run the unit up a few times now & she starts first time & runs well.

Just bear in mind those tubes are quite big and sit high when at rest. so may have to try it further aft than normal.
I havnt tried the feet first yet but will try it next time afloat and will let you know how i get on

Thanks paul as you can imagine we are very cautious about attempting this with my dearly beloved so we had planned to give it a go in the lee of old harry rocks on a fine summers day about ten feet from the shore with a jet ski just incase [not exactly your average MOB scenario] but we daren't think about that...Call the coast guard..

Seems like a lot of trouble for a tune-up.

Glad to hear the outcome was much better than it could have been (in more ways than one.)

Clive, we always recover divers over the stern of my P22 rather than over the tubes. I would recover a cas the same way.

Thanks Pete but i have some concerns about using the stern as my wife cannot feel her legs or move them she may clout them on the exhaust fitting or the drive leg. and its a boody long way past the engine hood back to the console
when you are trying to manouvre a 6 foot person who has a greater upper body mass;.] than me.
She would also be unaware if she cut her legs and was bleeding to death.
I know it sounds melodramatic but we have to concider it.
thanks again for your input

Good article on recovery methods in Practical Boat owner this month. One of the best methods is one I actually suggested a while ago - orange plastic fencing as used on building sites - they said it works really well so my suggestions aren't so bad after all........
