disaster today, lee on solent

had a right f**king nightmare today at lee-on-solent, took our dateline bounty 4.3 out for its maiden voyage and about 5 mins across the solent to the isle of wight the engine caught fire, not very pleased to say the least, seems the electrics shorted somewhere, as i reached into a smoke and fire filled engine compartment i grabbed the fire extinguisher and found that was faulty and wouldnt go off as one would expect it to, so there we were floating about half a mile out to sea with a boat on fire! in a bit of a pickle would be an understatement!

anyway thanks very much to the chap in his rib that rescued us by lending us his fire extinguisher and towing us back to the shore, you shot off so quick we didnt get a chance to thank you properly, and let us pay you for your fire extinguisher. if you are a memeber of this forum then please drop me an email via the site as id like to repay you for the equipment and for your fuel cost for towing us back in.

mark.

was a bit of a scary moment to be honest, but we both kept our cool until help arrived, just gratefull that there are people out there willing to help others in such a situation.
