Got rescued by "Hero" when a fishing banyan came to an abrupt halt after the motor cutter went sick. After letting off a couple of distress flares and getting no response from two GMDs (remember them!) Hero/ Phoebe headed in our direction and sent an LMEM across to help us get the engine started. Having to keep a filming schedule the ship sailed off. We returned to the Eskimo and the LMEM got an unexpected make n mend.
