Sorry the "w" is next to the "e", I meant West. And as for pre writing arcticles, never again, it must be an omen, a bit like whisling on the boat. Very bad luck. Alan P

Are we to assume that the boat does not have an EPIRB?

I didn't know that. I whistle a lot. I need to be careful.

Do think Spirit is still floating? I reckon she could easily be. There'll be lots of bouyancy, even the diesel is lighter than water.

Your being very PC Richard, the other bad luck omen is women on board, but as you didn't suggest it I won't either cos WW3 would break out
