Re: Giant Wave

Those are huge waves, stay away from that stuff. Hopefully everybody made it out.

It's several years old, and has popped up a time or two, whether on SailNet I'm not sure.

This is really old. Or at least seems so.

Rubbish! The sailboat in A Perfect Storm was a well known Westsail 32 called Satori. Plenty of info about it on the web.

Re: Giant Wave

an anchor might have kept the boat out of the surf or at least pointed in to the waves

From what I read that guy got a bad rap. His crew panicked and without his knowledge radioed a mayday. The boat was ultimately found washed ashore in reasonable good condition.

Re: Giant Wave

Yes I'm surprised the boat is afloat. With the open hatch it must not have tipped over as much as it looks like otherwise the boat would have filled.

Re: Giant Wave

Uh, Malcom, you might've closed your companionway and hatch? And that "dead engine", does it have anything to do with your jib sheets, lacking a stopper knot, going overboard and into your prop?

I withold further comment except to be very glad the rescuers were able to stay near and on their capsized boat. Malcom feels bad enough already without losing them, too.
