Raggbagger is on a distinguished road
What a great story , glad it had a happy ending , wooden plugs ,hacksaws all good stuff . A ditch-bag was allways standard in our cruising voyages (passports , phone numbers ,all that stuff you dont want to be looking for in a pinch) the other thing we had aboard was cordless tools .Bosch and Dewalt both make some fine reciprocating saws and other demasting/de-rigging quick tools well worth the money.If your budget allows EPIRBS are sweet and so are Sat phones but nothing replaces a well thought out "what if" plan . I agree with the others , you should send the story to the press they'd publish it
