No new lessons learnt - just re-inforcement of a couple of old ones: 1. Jump on small defects as soon as you see them. Its not normally catastrophic failure that ruins your whole day, but a series of little things which perhaps you were to idle to sort out which then bite you in the **rse. 2. Dont Panic. If the floorboards are floating - there's usually a simple reason....systematically hunt down the leak (in one instance it was a split seawater intake hose for the engine cooling water). 3. the 6 P's (Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance).
