He can hang a lot of BBQs on a 47 ft boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I was thinking the Telstar, not the Bavaria. The extra floats will make for a better dock anyway.

Hey ...here is another with a rudder loss today. Somehow I doubt they were 350mi east of cape cod if they left from Portsmouth VA...more like NH!! How many more rudder losses are we gonna have this year!!??
Anyway...check the link for a good picture:

ATLANTIC OCEAN - The Boston-based Coast Guard cutter Spencer assisted two French sailors Thursday about 350 miles east of Cape Cod, Mass., after their sailboat was disabled.
Frank Salaun and Isabelle Hoareau were sailing from Portsmouth, Va., to the Azores, near Portugal, when the rudder on their 38-foot Reina del Sol was reportedly sheared off Wednesday.
At the time, the closest help was a Navy vessel, the USS Gonzalez, who took the couple aboard for the night until the Coast Guard Spencer arrived Thursday around 7:30 a.m. The Navy transferred the two sailors, both uninjured, to the Spencer, and took the Reina del Sol in tow.
The Spencer is scheduled to transfer the passengers and tow to the Canadian Coast Guard, near Nova Scotia, late Friday.
“The Reina del Sol is the couple’s home,” said Capt. Daniel McLaughlin, commanding officer of the Spencer. “They were very grateful that we’d be taking them and their boat safely to Nova Scotia for repairs.”

Interesting Bill...wonder if it was just sold.

"How about another from a few days ago!
A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter rescued four people from a yacht from New Brunswick in the Atlantic Ocean off Bermuda Thursday morning.
The yacht Magique had lost its rudder early Wednesday
A liquefied natural gas tanker was diverted to try to pick up the sailors, but the waters were too rough.
Tom Ogg, a duty officer with the Bermuda Rescue Co-ordination Centre, said the U.S. Coast Guard picked up the crew at 8:30 a.m.
"They were taken off in a helicopter … and the vessel was abandoned at sea," said Ogg.
Ogg said the four sailors have been brought to Bermuda and are all well.
The authorities have not identified the people on board.
The Magique is registered at the Rothesay Yacht Club in the town east of Saint John, with Brian Cullinan as its skipper."




A bit of research shows this one as a C&C 44.

The Bermuda Triangle eats rudders!!

This is truly getting scary! Three yachts, 38' to 47' LOA, all lost their rudders within days of one another in the waters NW of Bermuda.

You suppose there's a diabolical rudder-eating fish out there somewhere?

When you lose steering in a sail boat, you lose propulsion as well unless you can balance the rig perfectly on the course you want to steer, which is a little hard in 30 kts with a sea running. I think the CG wrote it up correctly.

I seem to remember that in years past yachts in the Caribbean 1500 rally often have rudder problems. My guess is that it's a lot of these boats are probably on their first real offshore passage and that years of neglect of the rudder / steering gear catches up with them when the boat starts getting tossed about a bit, as it can in a Gulf Stream crossing.

Apparently, the rudder eating fish have catch limits... boats smaller than 35' are probably thrown back...and they're too small to eat rudders on boats 50' and larger.
