Re: Anyone know of any Crealocks lost at sea?
A friend of mine was on a Pacific Seacraft 37 that they decided to abandon off Bermuda 4 or 5 years ago. I don't know if the boat was ever recovered and I don't remember which storm, but it was one of several boats that were either abandoned or went down in the same storm.
I don't believe there were any true failures of the boat itself (hull, steering, rigging). As I recall, they lost both sail and engine power although I don't remember why they couldn't sail- not a rig failure. The owner was injured, and I'm sure that was a major factor in the decision. I do recall that their real problem wasn't the wind but the waves and confused seas.
