I believe the mast you saw in Anacortes was for the Oracle trimaran that sailed in the Americas cup not the X40' cat

CalebD I know they had help but at least they righted it. Damn.

BBurg The designer should have just made a bigger NACRA 5.8. That looked like a Hobie 16 type wreck. My NACRA hasn't buried a hull and stopped like that since I bought it in 1984.
