Dont know how stupid it was - i had seen this already - looks like funtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
certainly a picture for the owners study wall and the saloon bulkhead!!! -
They could have done with a bit more boat speed to stay ahead of that
breaking wave OR been pulling a drogue to keep their boat lined up and not
so easy to be broached and flung on her beam ends - but then the breaking
wave may have dumped on the cockpit with more serious consequences. Without
being there we dont know if this breaking wave came out of nowhere and
before and after these picture were taken things were 'reasonably' benign.
Being a Bennie owner and seeing the newer boats much lighter built (more
'engineerinly' designed boats - which i dont like as much) come through this
sort of event makes the 'Bendy Toys' nickname look even more
silly.............I think you could have put almost any sail boat in this
picture including any Amel and only the shape of the boat would change.
