Things don't always work against us.
I had a motor begin filling its sump with seawater one week after I had arrived back for wintering at a place callled Peterhead in Scotland in 1998.
It took me some time to fix it, but man, it could not have happened at a better time.
If that had caught me at the start of the season, I would have been in big trouble, with a big American crew arriving and on holiday and no ship to sail. Well, we could have sailed but we weren't going to motor far.
Sometimes we get lucky.
