is our chosen method of freeing vessels from entanglement in ropes and nets.

Weirdly we did none of this for the first few years that I was on the crew. However, as the years pass it seems to become more and more common. Is there more fishing gear out there? Is it less clearly marked? Are the tides stronger than they used to be? Do yacht skippers keep a poorer lookout than they used to? Who can say...all I know is that we seem to do more of this each year.

This was one very well equipped and competently crewed vessel which we helped out last year in the height of summer.
