A huge thank you to Don Mackenzie and Tom for coming to help fend our sailboat Pilgrim off the beach on the night of Friday, Dec. 18.
My tie-up line to anchor abraded thru in a matter of four hours, sending us careening towards the beach in Porpoise Bay. I got three light anchors out, and the motor started but was still dragging into shallower water. My better half made the judgement call to phone Mackenzies Marine, and within 10 minutes, Don Mackenzie in his 80s and his deckhand Tom came alongside and secured a bowline and towed us to Don’s dock. We live aboard, and this selfless act which Don refused to be compensated for meant everything to us. Kudos to you both for your help.
