Second was a 23' Wilson flyer, broke her mooring early one morning, fortunatly a friend spotted it, but had no way of saving it so he swam out and sank it on the spot, good job really otherwise she would have broke up on the rocks she was heading for, once again I was able to drive to recover.
On both occations I took my outboards to my mech friend, who rebuilt to perfect working order, he did warn me if I was to leave my boat unattended, to disconnect engine batt supply as this would speed up corrosion when submerged.
So my message to others is; A wreck is not always necessarily Wrecked. until its inaccessible that is.
Bit like me really.
Wreck that is
