The Delicate Art of Careening

Not to say I would ever want to do this, or suggest that others do instead of going into a good haulout facility; but it can be done in the right conditions. I'm sure it would stir up commotion over environmental concerns if you did this anywhere in California; however.

Holland ahoy

We once hit a (uncharted, natch) rock, pretty hard, and flexed the hull - broke two legs off the head, but only a scratch on the keel paint.

Mine was the very first, the prototype, no hull number, and was a little different from production boats, beefier in some areas. The design was reinforced somewhere along the way...
