Your scribe took a weekend off last Friday so I’m not able to give a first-hand account but I gather it was a good trip. Mike took the boat out to the Jumbo and Neptune which is where we would have gone the previous week had the sea state permitted. One of the wrecks was full of barracuda – presumably the mums, dads and big brothers of the ones that inhabit Karen’s dhow.
A week off I said? Well it was until I got a phone call at 4pm asking for help. The boat trailer had jumped out of the ball joint on the down-ramp at Aruba Street and was wedged under Mike’s Discovery. With a few returning divers pressed into service the trailer was re-hooked and returned to the yard without further incident (apart from a puncture whilst reversing in).
