what to do if you get holed

One of our yachting mags over here

Tahcting Monthly has got hold of a beaten up 30 footer and are slowly destroying it

some great films

the last two are about how to stop a boat filling with water when holed

top hole stuff I reckon

damp proof course was the best



the rest of the films are here

they dreamt up some plans that worked really well - others failed

What about that jury rig with the stump vid? It doesn't look very likely for a singlehander. (Some experience stepping a trailerable with an A-frame might come in handy.)

2 knots headway at 70 deg to the wind doesn't seem all that useful against a lee shore. What do you think?

I thought it was very useful - I now know that the first thing to do is to bung a berth cushion in the place and buy yourself some time

it was also reassuring to see how hard it was to make the hole in the first place

amazing

this is the sort of stuff magazines should be doing - although as a video producer I have to say that video is pretty powerful stuff and the material works better on film than it ever could in a magazine

as a man who has spent most of his life working as a written hack ..... that is pretty sad

Seeing this should go a long way toward mitigating panic in a nasty situation. The umbrella was hilarious! I never would have thought of that...

I loved the way Chris Beeson handed the stump of the umbrella handle to his unseen assitant on the foredeck

very good I thought

I was interested because I holed the slug last year

gave it an almightly clunk on some rocks off Cromer

it cracked the GRP in the keel box

- had to man the bilge pump for 15 minutes in the hour

the story is on the films on this page - and also a film about the repair
