MWNN is not yet home. He phoned last night, having just crossed the channel, to say that he'd forgotten to close the outflow valve on the sea-toilet and asking what he should do. I advised that to avoid many sleepless nights, he should return to the boat, which he did on the same train from which he'd just disembarked. A late-night text reassured me that the boat was still afloat.

A costly mistake (financially, physically, and emotionally) which could have been much more expensive had the boat sunk.

I'd have probably have eaten all the crumble by now...

I'd put it in the freezer so the temptation wasn't quite as great as it might have been.

A thorough nuisance, but he was right to go back. And he's not likely to make that mistake again.

He did something similar last year when he forgot to de-winterise the toilet. A return to the boat was in order but he turned it into a Christmas Shopping trip later in the year.
