Cheers RJH, only too happy to help. I really hope you get your fuel tank sorted asap - as much as I enjoyed talking to you under tow, I'm sure it's not something you wish to repeat in the near future!

Jimbo kindly and cheerfully offered to demonstrate to his Level 2 students a live tow in action and within half an hour I was back at Ocean Quay.

My long awaited Easter weekend of boating with the family was ruined but it's good to know there are Ribnet members out there who are always willing to help.
