Let's see, there's so many.... I guess it was not pulling the rudder on my first sail (which was documented here) while trying to get the boat out before it sank. Needless to say, the wooden rudder didn't survive. This also made a nice set of holes in the transom. The outcome was nice though. I got a stronger transom, learned a lesson and the new rudder's more efficient and deeper than the old one.
