Holy Cow! How long did the storm last? We got caught in the same caliber winds last September in Colorado -- 14 minutes of sheer, out-of-nowhere hammering. Our little SJ21 was not enjoying life until we finished furling and reefing, after which it was fine. You got knocked down on bare poles?!?! That's insane!
