Maybe your 7 part series should be titled, "What not to do on a sailboat."

Sorry, but its so hard to understand your post, I believe you struck an oil rig or vessel of some kind and that broke a spreader which you tried to fix with a line? And it was your port spreader that needed repair but you threw the wrench over the starboard spreader.

Did you not have a spare halyard available?
I am just trying to understand better what was going on.
I will now go back and reread all 7 parts.
