Hello Hugh, and Happy New Year.

I didn’t watch it right through until I’d fully digested my Christmas dinner. But now that I’ve slightly de-bloated I’ve decided to risk it.

It makes you realize the risks people can face just to make a living. Although I wonder whether they had to come in right then or whether they were just being a bit silly. It reminded me of some newspaper reports I’ve read of fishing fleets trying to make harbour in a storm in the mid 1800s, and being smashed to pieces, and the crews drowned, right before the eyes of their waiting families.

Certainly much more interesting than many movies I’ve watched recently.

All the best,
Alan

Hi Hugh,

I got seasick just watching the video. [drowning] These fishermen had a lot of courage.
