thedudeistoocool is on a distinguished road
What I was wondering is if the dropboards were in or if the impact of the wave smashed them.
You can see the companionway hatch is closed but there are no dropboards
if the dropboards were in and survived the impact do you think the boat would have stayed afloat despite the multiple rollovers and the cockpit being swamped ?

I guess when you are sailing amongst surfers you can anticipate a rough ride.
