Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

His boat received a second hole in the cabin from the dismasting. Personally I feel that he should have found a way to stop or at least slow down the ingress of water through that hole by maybe stuffing a cushion or something in it. Anything to give him some time to remove the water from below.

EDIT: That was a direct cause of his possible death because it was what sunk the boat.
