Our Spade holds us securely in Caleta Beaulieu, in 20m of water at 54.47S 069.37W. We sleep very well with it and it has served us all the way through the Chilean Canales. In the next month it will have the chance to taste the waters of Cape Horn !
A friend of mine, Peter Skillen, also has an Amel , Pure Magic, which he took to Antarctica last month and is now en route to S Georgia, with his Spade on my recommendation. Very pleased , not least with its performance on the rocky bottoms of Antarctica.
