Arrived in Falmouth early morning the 5th Jan after driving down from Tilbury. We piled into the rib for the run out to the tug which was moored to a gigantic barge out in Carrick Roads. Lovely sunny morning with the wind still dying away from the gales the previous days.
We were straight into a large but lazy swell that made her pitch quite well, I had been elected cook so prepared the evening meal (full crew of 6 onboard) and had an early night. It had been many years since I had felt that sensation of weightlessness as the bows dropped into a trough leaving you almost floating before meeting your bunk again and being pushed hard into it. In spite, or maybe because of this, I slept like a log.

(snip) This is where the story ends ...... for now !!! waiting for the insurance and for the replacement electric motor ........ If circumstances permit, when she restarts her travels I would like to be on her ....... I hate not completing a job !!!
Is the motor a DC one? If so, it would be good to know of a source.

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
