Check the video I posted for other techniques.
Interestingly enough on another thread, this interview with the skipper was posted in March which outlined where almost this exact situation happened during last year's NARC in Swan 48.

NARC Rally Nightmare 2011, Part 1 - An interview with captain AJ Smith from Swan 48 Bella Luna - YouTube

Discussion on thru hull at about 7:15 of video.

They lost the engine and all electronics as a result.

Lots of other good stuff in the interview on their storm management and decisions.

Why are people happy to accept science which makes their life easier while rejecting science that makes their faith or beliefs more difficult?
