So the worst possible time for the tractor to stop working is when you’re already in the sea up to the foot plates launching a RIB and the tide is coming in fast! Yep, that was us this morning, running to the jeep grabbing any decent length of rope on the way. Thankfully the trusty Rav4 had enough grip to pull the tractor out of the sea. Jump started her on the beach, took her to DGP Garage for a quick test of the alternator… as I suspected it isn’t working. Trip to Auto Electrics at White Hoe at lunchtime methinks.
