    West Michigan Thread

    There was definitely some navigational confusion. Boat was heading towards the red and green lights of Mona Lake channel. Appears to of been coming in almost perpendicular to the shore at the time. Think it actually got far enough in to of made contact with the steel after it started hitting the bottom. There was a line around the prop that apparently ended up there as the boat was trying to get itself to safety after ending up inside the sandbars It was a N/M designed Morgan 45. Rudder and steering broke after the grounding. It was night. It was really wavy. Must of been pretty scary for the people on board. Really great guy that got really confused and made a really bad decision.

    Keel didn't get cut off. Lots of fake news in that post. They just tied a line to it and pulled it off. Rudder broke on the way out.

    That's a good looking boat. Bet it's pretty quick.

    It's Bretwalda. It had a retractable sprit until last year.

    il mostro attempting chi-mac speed run record

    It was wet at times but not the fire hose that you think it would be. Very little spray made it to the very back of the bus. But that being said there was lots of standing water coming over the deck, you'd often be in the back of the cockpit standing in 6 inch deep water. Spinnaker trimmer was typically the guy getting hammered as we were the only guys outboard in front of the wheels. After we gybed and set the A3 in the morning things got a little gnarly. The sea state was huge and our angle into it was rough with the right shift and the reaching kite. Jack was trimming the kite when we barreled into the backside of a monster. I ducked my head for a wall of water flying down the boat, we were pretty steadily hitting mid to upper twenties on the speedo at this time, when I looked back up Jack had been washed from his spot and was packed on the cockpit floor in between the steering wedge and the cockpit wall still holding onto the sheet. In typical Jack fashion he calmly says "A little help here?". Pretty funny shit bombing at 28 knots.

    There were a few cameras and GoPros going. I'd think some stuff will start making the rounds soon. The morning was still pretty fast but the gnarly action was all going down in what seemed like endless darkness.

    That run was over 24 hours for the sleds. We went by the island just at dawn and hit Chicago the next day an hour or 2 after the sun came up. Would of been faster but the big breeze didn't come in until we were south of the islands. Just a tight jib reach until the breeze shifted. That night was absolutely epic. Full moon showed us the way home all night.
