If they couldnt grab that quick enough the boat must have gone down mighty quick. (Or the EPIRB didnt work)

Would someone inform the ignorant of us about what the purpose of that crank in the photograph is?
Yes sailed on a boat with those sort of old windows... looks very pretty but I wonder whats safer? the type we use nowadays or those?
(By the way its not ignorant to ask for knowledge)

But not including spending much money on her. Thats looks a very old engine as a replacement.

By the way, it was me who first sugested the boat would have been hauled to replace the engine. It wernt 'facts', it were conjecture. To clear up the doubt is great.
