Congratulations on surviving what seems to have been a lively trip. And a steep learning
curve successfully climbed with no parts
left behind. Sounds like a good choice of boat, you got that part right as there is nothing better than a boat that looks after you, in spite of your best efforts. Things - can only get better.
Writing a report of your trip will help you to review 'incidents' and provide a basis for you in the future. Publishing it here may generate some useful, and other, comments too.
