PCP will become famous soon enough
Stamm towing his boat



They have talked about the boat breaking in half but for what we can see it seems that it was the bow section that broke.

Stamm dived today under the boat and was surprised to see that the keel and bulb (almost half the weight of the boat) are still there. the boat was violently shaken by the storm and the cabin's top was destroyed. It is incredible how the airtight compartments that make the boat unsinkable could maintain the boat afloat, considering that it is broken in two parts, with a broken cabin top and supporting almost 4 tons of ballast.
