Swinging Boom, How do you stop it????

Ahoy ye all, The Pirate of Pine Island was indeed hunbled by the sea just a few weeks ago by dislocating a shoulder , bruised ribs and a broken nose later for his arrogance. Aye but it tis the experience that only a Pirate dare tell ye of. Me vessel stood out to sea and a rouge wave took me by suprise when on me to cabin top. I was eating thee glass of the cockpit deck face first, I jumps up thinking wow me arm was feeling strange but I had business to attend to so''s I forgot about it. Me cabin was a foot under water and me battery was the first to go. Damn no electronics, bildge pump, radio. But I still keeps going, rips me Jib I did ,then tore the mizzen boom car off the mast track and all. Fine mess of it to be sure. Aye me busted up vessel was two days making it back to port. God how I love to sail!!! Pirate of Pine Island

FSR will usually get the blood off.... In Florida, the sun will work it out eventually also.

It''s never fun to be "stupid" but if you learn something its okay to laugh about it.
