Anybody seen the online pics of the Hylas 47 that dis-masted in the northeast, after striking a charted rock?

It was on charter.

In an even smaller world story, the aunt of one of my customer's was aboard.

Dismasting, was hard to figure, until I got the second hand account from someone aboard.  It was a compression fracture, just above the gooseneck (mast-boom joint).  With the keel stepped mast, and a nice tight rigging plan (shrouds and stays); upon impact at approx. 7.5~8.5 knots, the keel came up.  The mast, restrained by standing rigging, couldn't go up.  BOOM. Blew out the mast.

Betcha there was a run on clean underwear shortly thereafter, to resolve the runs in the dirty underwear!

Don't care for and have no interest in this Gunboat 66.
It just doesn't turn my crank, sorry. You enjoy sailing it. Not me.

I hull fitted fine motor yachts together. Look at this thing, it's pretty plain jane looking.

skip.

Im not a cat sailor but if I was going to be offshore in one it would be a Gunboat.  Fast and built well.
