We were a day out of Tortola, heading North to Bermuda, when the main batteries suddenly went dead. No lights. No engine. Had to navigate by the stars because we couldn't see the compass at night. We ended up tacking up the channel to Hamilton. Luckily the depthsounder had its own battery. We watched it go 500, 300, 100, TACK! about 80 times. That was spooky, but going through the Gulf Stream with three waterspouts in sight at once was the scariest.
