Re: Things lost in the water

"Ready to come about............Hard alee." PLOP. Thought I heard something fall in the water but didn't pay much heed to it.... Then I needed the winch handle to tighten the jib. Gone. The SOB mainsheet had deviously and surreptitiously lifted it out of the holder on the way across and deposited it neatly overboard...damn!

Alberg 35: With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship.
