Excellent educational videos! Brings new meaning to "Missile Hazzard" if you don't secure things down.

It seems even more obvious that you need wave action to right a mono - and that you might be inverted for a while if you really do go over. Freakin' scary.

Smack,
I'm wondering if the setup of the sling had something to do with that. I need to go back and watch the vid again but I thought thei was mention of the sling being attached in such a way as to keep the thing turtled.

It would seem pretty surprising that the Jeanneau would not be inherently unstable when upside down. Not particularly broad in the beam and certainly no 'wings' to hold it over.

I don't think that a Jeanneau with a RCD Category "A" will be stable upside down. For example, the Jeanneau 57 Stability curve shows a good GZ at 119 degrees and not too flat at 180 degrees - that wouldn't stay inverted unless the water were perfectly calm (a condition fortunately not particularly conducive to capsizing).

That sounds like a clever way to slow down the competition on a major race: Sneak out the night before and replace some rigging bits with substandard ones!

I wonder where they got the "nail gun" cutter though. I thought there was one on the US market using shotgun shells (a wee bit more powerful!) but hadn't been able to find anything in an explosive cutter when I was looking last year.

Excellent stuff SD

Too bad the guys in the first video didn't speak Canadian english, it would have made it easier to follow along.
