Re: Knock Downs

I had a bad knockdown last April at 42 degrees South in the South Atlantic after a successful eastabout rounding of Cape Horn. It was no fun and did about a thousand dollars worth of damage to the boat in just a few seconds. It was the last bad weather I had after a total of nearly five months spent in the Southern Ocean and an eastabout circumnavigation of more than 40,000 miles. Go figure. Neptune didn't want to let me out without kicking my tail a little. Ron Kirkendoll on "Ferrous"
