Chris and Manuela run Darling Blue as a skippered charter.
But he is currently shafted as his coupling broke and bent the prop shaft big time.
So at 10am this sunny Wednesday morning I reported for duty as Starboard engine. We had a South African as Port engine and Henri was reverse thrust.
Chris was clearly nervous has the anchor came up and he entrusted his home and income generator to a pair dinghy driving muppets.
We slalomed through anchored boats and lined up on the travel lift piers aiming off a little to allow for the cross wind. It all went smoothly and at no point was full power required, just gentle drive and we delivered Darling Blue to the brand new travelift, the biggest in the Caribbean.
It has already got the inevitable nickname. I mean what else would you call something that is bright green and can lift 260 tons.
