Birdface,

Very glad to hear you made it back to Scituate alright. You did just fine under the circumstances, and should be proud that you got your boat and crew safely back to harbour.

This was the sort of difficulty I was concerned about when I (and others) cautioned you to follow the more coastal route to P-Town (see: http://www.sailnet.com/forums/seaman...-cape-cod.html) I'm very happy that you took that advice!! This situation might have been much trickier if it had happened out on the east side of Stellwagen Bank in unsettled conditions.

On the bright side, there are infinitely worse places to be shipwrecked than Scituate! All the best of luck with the repair, and get yourself a nice ice cream at Dribbles!
