Re: Hello all, I'm a new user but an old sailor

Hello Jeff, I was about to write you. More on that later, but your reply to Paulo was very good, you have a good memory. The larger issue that you refer to is the need for professionalism. The signs of heavy damage were there, you do not "bust" four floors (Transvers) and think that nothing else is damaged. Some of the points in my report dealing with the manner in which energy traveled from the leadgin point of the keel up to the transfers floors and out to the hull side, with a crack there that then followed a line to the port chain plate is so "classic" that the University manager of the marine group should have seen the writing in the wall. A racing boat cannot be kept in the water as they did, etc. Anyway, hope all is well with you and that you had a good sailing summer best regards to both of you. Kiko
