Peter 088 - Di

For fifty years Di has been Tam's partner in life and boats. She even married him four years ago, although she didn't explain why. Her sons were born on a barge, she can lassoo a mooring bollard from fifty paces blindfolded in a gale in the middle of the night, and is the most extraordinarily patient and skilful teacher of her craft that one could hope to meet.

Here, typically she is holding down two separate conversations while watching every move of a trainee foredeck crewman, ready to intervene in a split second should that be necessary.
