Smuggling in the Storms
Had some interesting landings last week, what with those storms and everything. Thing is, the Revenue Cutter won't go out in that weather, which means we do. Almost lost The Windycutts down at Mupe Bay. Lot of rocks there and she got blown right in. Bit of damage but we managed to anchor her up. Quite a job getting the cargo off though. Ever tried rowing a boat in a gale and five foot waves? Sometimes wonder why I do it. I don't even drink brandy! Don't want to leave Isabel without a Dad. Or me without a me, come to that. I think it's just the excitement after you've been mending boots all day!
