Can't get away from that. Its the coin of the realm for the 'internet experts'.

Yep, thats what happens when a whole chainplate assembly is ripped through a deck.

What I was questioning was Hannah's idea that the boat was in obvious disrepair, and that therefore the chainplates failing is not a surprise.

Clearly the boat had a problem. Was that problem obvious and apparent prior to the failure? I hope so, and I'd assume so, but this *video* does not contain evidence to support that.

I'm not sure what you saw on that boat that led you to this conclusion. The decks don't look necessarily rotten to me. They look wet.

Like you, I /hope/ there were obvious visual signs that the chainplate assembly was toast, but theres nothing in this video that proves that.

Looks like a steel Van de Stadt lost a keel. Two onboard lost...

No, I certainly wouldn't go that far. It's a lot like REBEL HEART was in that regard.
