Beneteau loses rudder..boat sinks
 
This Benny 40.7 had it's rudder snap en route from Nap town to Newport and the 6 person crew could not stop the water. Coast Guard rescued the 6 crew but sadly the boat was lost.

Not a good weekend for LI waters as a J80 racing lost its' keel...again all hands safe.

40.7 or 44.7 may be.. model 40.9 doesn't exist

Cam,

Do you have any info on the J40 keel loss? An article maybe?

Thanks

Boats are just falling apart left & right, or would that be port & starboard?

You realize of course I'm going to scream like a girl the first time the wind hits

(no offense intended to the ladies of sailnet, most of whom can outsail me).

Actually with the rudders - this would be "Boats falling apart Forward to Aft"...:D:D:D

The J Boat that lost it's keel was a J/80. All of these issues have my attention - I have an offshore race scheduled for late this month. Well be paying a lot of attention to safety.

Safety first, race second.
