Who was that just standing there in front of the pic when she came off? I would have been yelling, "Get over there and hold her up! What? She WONT fall on you if you push hard enough!!"

Val,
Thank goodness it turned out well. I can only imagine your state of mind. Everything around you appears to be happening in slo-motion and your mind is working in nano-seconds!

Actually, when it fell and pitched to port, that happened quickly. Then we just spent three hours wondering if it would continue to fall. As you can see, it didn't look promising. Amazingly, I don't think it even shifted on its pads in the cradle, because we never saw the unpainted areas under the pads even after the cradle dug in. When we launched the boat, however, one pad floated free from its base: all four screws holding it down had been sheared off.

At least you have some nice shots of the CN Tower for our foreign friends.

Enjoy the season!
