Engine Problems - but not mine

And interesting it was.

As dusk was coming, on the sweeping bed from the Rocks, Crystal makes hand signals to indicate total engine failure. I had to act fast, and without to much fretting Crystal was under tow before long. Roach found it hard fighting the current and towing a 7ton yacht at the same time. The only thing to do was to anchor for the night. The Rocks is a perfect anchorage. So the next step was do maneouvre Crystal into a position where she could drop anchor.

By the time I found my space it was dark. Sods law my anchor dragged too, but on second attempt I was secure. The corned beef hash that Crystal cooked up that evening was very well received.
