Re: Rudder lost at sea and rescue

That boat was well equipped too. Davits, rescue raft, solar..And from reading his blog. Just seems the "captain" was too willing to let her go. Wouldn't we use a reefed main and jib to try and balance the boat if we lost a rudder? I dunno.. just guessing, wondering what McGiver woulda done.
jus sayin..
