By the way, after inspection of other parts..the Main block is also shot!!!! Its a Lewmar 2990 1801, breaking load is 7937lbs!!!...Its gone...just shows the power of the impact...no wonder it broke...

The traveller is off now for inspection....seems ok...

It was a high load block...



Some balls disappeared...

That's what you get for using cheap French Carbon Fiber for the boom on your boat...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

So I guess the moral of this story is:

A traveller with no balls should just stay home?

That was funny.....but a traveler with no balls can be a woman....

Funny..very funny...

He's so cute....I look at that photo above and see I need to close (provisionally) my transom...and need netting around....damn...that's ugly...

But it's worth the looks sacrifice for a few years. Gotta love it. You spend a couple of years getting them to walk and talk, and then the rest of your life getting them to sit down and shut up.
