Salvage pump

As part of yesterday's exercise Martin wanted Nick and Oli to spend the time dealing with a scenario based around a search for a water-logged boat. The starting point was getting the 'x-boat' rigged, into the water then using the salvage pump to fill it with water. Although this was only meant to be setting up the exercise it proved to be a significant task in itself!First Oli tried to untangle the hose.Then Nick tried to prime it with water.Then Oli tried to get the pump to start. Then he tried again with the fuel turned on!Then they sprayed water into the dinghy until it was quite full.'Dead fred' didn't look too happy......never does.
