We Hit a Tree....

Only 5 miles of Dismal Swamp Canal to go and my father-in-law asks for a term at the helm. I took the opportunity to go below and a minute later there's a crash and a radical turn. I get topsides just in time to dodge falling poplar branches.

Haven't been up the mast yet but so far I can tell that the anchor light is gone, the loran antenna is bent 90 degrees but functioning, the lightning diffuser looks okay and the wind indicator is pointing straight up.

The good part is I now have someone to blame everything that's wrong with this 20 year old boat on.....
