Now THIS is actually a great point DPM. It would be great to see damage data for production and traditional bluewater boats that have come through similar conditions.

It might well be the case that the lighter built production boats are damaged past the point of repair more quickly/easily than the trads. I could see that as a possibility.

Any studies out there?
