It's good to know there are people out there who will try to help others with no prompting.
We were doing a side by side tow about to enter the hamble and got dusted at close quarters by a 50-60ft motor cruiser. This resulted in both vessels being flung about in heavy wake.
We had the lights on and they did see us, just decided not to slow down. We obviously had restricted manoeuvrability.
At this point looking down the river I could see three more cruisers powering up and was pretty much resigned to the fact that even though they had seen us, they would still come hammering out and buffet us against the disabled vessel.
Low and behold, another rib came up on our starboard rear quarter, saw we had been done once already and then proceeded to go ahead of us and ward off the cruisers!
Did it with a certain vigor i might add, quality!
A man and a woman, I think you had a blue collar, may not have been, was a tad busy. If you come on here, cheers for that, saved any potential damage being done to either vessel.
Double thumbs up from me.
