Reputations Saved – FISH!
At 0730 this morning a line was cast over the side of WD, as it has been each morning for that eight days. Robert went below to make coffee, Ken and David were chatting happily in the cockpit, when....”Mahi Mahi!” shouted Ken. Two had jumped clear of the water chasing a shoal of flying fish. One jumped in the vicinity of our lure, within a nano-second the reel was singing. We were all o deck, Ken hauled, Robert gaffed and I sprayed vodka onto the gills, our chose humane method of putting the fish down. While David kept us  on track.
