Even though we have gone on boating hols for 10 years now, you learn something new each time !? How stupid on a lovely sunny morning last easter we had hired the Swan Regal from Swancraft ( lovely friendly yard) we had moored overnight at rockland staithe !! and we went through rocland broad to return back to the yard !! Our friend was at the wheel and the remaining 4 where putting the fifnishing touches and cleaning the boat !! All of a sudden we looked up and couldnt understand why we had stopped !! Yes you guessed it ! :o he hadnt followed thefollowed the posts :lol: and we had run aground ( how embarrising) we called the yard and now we have the knowledge "How to get off a mud bank without burning the engine out " !!!! It wasnt funny at the time but is now one of our tales to tell ! At least no more boats came our way and spared our blushes ( and we got back to the yard on time )
