Clearly since the boat drifted so far without sinking there was no imminent danger. As for damage, I see a couple of possibilities:
It looks like the lower shrouds on both sides are slack and swinging around. They could be running backstays, or flag halyards or something else but it looks like the shrouds are slack.
I'm also wondering if they lost a headstay. Is the boat a cutter or double headsail sloop? The furled headsail in the video does not extend all the way to the end of the bowsprit, or meet up with the bobstay. Was there another stay out there before that is now gone?
No, what appears to be slack are halyards... And, that "bowsprit" is simply an anchor platform added on, the headstay on the Morgan 382 is at the stem...
The boat appears remarkably "tidy" for one supposedly having suffered "severe damage"... Sails are neatly furled/stowed, additional gear such as windvane, wind generator, solar panels are all in place... Hell, even the jerry jugs on deck haven't been disturbed...
Interestingly, the boat is now listed on Yachtworld, that's a lot of boat and gear for $18K... Looks like all the photos were taken as soon as she was brought into port, exactly as she was abandoned... Some of the pics confirm the upper and lower shrouds all appear to be in place... The only apparent damage obviously occurred after she was abandoned and during the course of the salvage, the anchor platform is mangled, and there is heavy impact damage to the caprail amidships...
I'm guessing someone simply wanted to get the hell off that boat... (grin)
