of course! she's a 1982 Skye 51.

here's a picture from Puerto Montt, Chile where I didn't mean to do that...



the railroad ties set out on the grid had been attacked by shipworms and the one at the front of the keel broke in half, you can see one piece just aft of the front of the keel. I knew i was in trouble when i could hear the wood creaking as the tide went out. we nosed down imperceptibly until coming to rest, bow and keel touching. it was a pretty stressful event but we got the bottom cleaned just the same
