I forgot a point of safety that can be annoying at the time but somewhat amusing afterwards.
If whilst mudweighting you decide for a trip ashore to the pub or wherever by your tender if you have one, and it is going to be dark when you return to the boat,
LEAVE A LIGHT ON!!!
At this time of year it shouldn't be a problem but in the autumn/winter months if there is no moon or little light pollution about then it can get a tad awkward. On a few occasions we have came out of a pub late at night only to see inky blackness on the Broad and a right job finding the boat. Shining powerfull torches on other boats with the crews asleep is not really on either. Nowadays of course we have 'B.A' sorted as there is a 360deg white light on top of our flag mast that is always on if we are on a mudweight overnight and if our with the hire boats (Lads week) then as stated a light is left on.
