Twice in a week

Well, having said that we rarely hear from people again after we have brought them in, this letter arrived hot on the heels of Dieter's e-mail. This gentleman was rescued by us late last year. His large power boat was high and dry, aground on some rock ledges close to Egmont Bight. Needless to say he was very pleased to see us. We recovered him from the boat using our little inflatable, put out a kedge anchor then took him and his crew back to the boathouse. At high tide we returned with them and put them back on board their now floating vessel and then escorted them home. I would like to think we provided a good service. Judging by the very generous cheque which accompanied the letter it would seem as if this chap thought so too.
