Then it went bang

was how the skipper of today's casualty described what had happened to his engine. He was right to be worried that this was followed by a large amount of black smoke too. So he did the correct thing, left the engine room hatch shut and called the coastguard. They called us which was how my bike ride was interrupted and I ended up going on a shout wearing a full suit of lycra! Not pretty...

Anyway, it was a straight-forward job to rig up the tow and pull him back into the bay where he is now sitting on our mooring. Hopefully the damage is not too extensive and he can soon be back in business again.
