Yep, no brain fluid in the cockpit or on deck after that move! But we did motor back home. Art by Jody if one remembers him, grounded a bit north and west in the same race, still not sure why he was that far west or in that direction.......

new boom for my little boat was all of 600 including shipping from FL to the NW. About as far as one can ship things in the continental US! One of th ebetter crew quotes, Doug who happened to be the now closed local WM mgr, wished he had a source for the replacement boom! dang sales guys!
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
