Another thing that was interesting to me was the inverted stability of that Jeanneau(?) w/o the mast! They had to keep craning it to get it to pop from the turtle. Imagine if a mast and sails were on that!

It seems even more obvious that you need wave action to right a mono - and that you might be inverted for a while if you really do go over. Freakin' scary.
