The Boudicca visited Rosyth yesterday, went out past the Isle of May, footled around and is now back anchored off Port Seton. That only leaves one missing - the Braemar which turned off its AIS 2 days ago. I suppose one of my mandatory 2 stints of exercise (is Nicola trying to kill us?) could be a cycle down the coast and count them - a nice reach on the way out but a beat to windward on the return, I might take the velo with the tree-climbing gears rather than the yin with a corncob.
I had read on another boating forum that shipping lines can no longer just abandon their crew wherever the ship is but have to continue employment or repatriate. It was suggested that the cheapest way to do that in current conditions is to send them home by sea and that with little hope of business restarting that was what they are starting to do. So perhaps Fred is sending one of his boats to Singapore?
