Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?
That actually reinforces my point...
How much force do you think it took to snap that mast? What would have happened if the boat had been on the hard with the mast up?
I believe that a sailboat would be most stable in the water, on a reliable mooring, with the mast pulled. Far more stable than on stands.
