Re: Digest Number 492
You must understand that there were 20 foot waves crashing into that
marina. I think that Amel was flung in the air and landed on another
boat and that is how it was holed. In other cases catamarans were
flying trough the air and holed boats. That is how a 72' custom Farr
was sunk. At another marina a mid 80s Halberg rassy 42 was holed and
sunk as well as a hans Christian, Yet righ next to these boats was an
Oday 35 that survived quite well!

construction when they are tossed about and put into piles after acruisers, etc.
I am curious in the one photo of why the Amel sank...especiallygiven the
water tight bulkheads (doors open...leak unattended for severaldays?) I am
in the process of looking for a Santorin...and regretfully onedoesn't get
to do a damage comparison until these catastrophic weather eventsoccur.
