We stayed for a couple of days in Whitby before making passage north. Unfortunately, we thought we had picked up rope on the port prop which meant we had to make an unscheduled stop at Blyth and then wait for Hurricane Bertha to pass. A diver checked her underside and the all clear was given. We did try to clear it before we arrived so possibly the rope cutters did their job?
We stopped at Montrose harbour for a short spell, being dwarfed amongst the offshore support vessels
