Just letting you know how we got on today, we were going to tidy up and adjust the ropes but the weather got the better of us the ship was to far away from the quayside to board. We waited for a while but realised the wind was not going to ease up so we had to give up. Yesterday we replaced 2 broken ropes and made ready another left on deck to be put which the harbour master can get at it if needed. The keys for the ship have been returned to the office. I feel we need to get the lines sorted as she does seem to have come slack and is further away from the quayside whilst this isn't a panic it
should be sorted sooner rather than later. Thats it for now - Paul
