Key West 2008 : Truman Annex : Mast on Wire

Recommended Posts

The accompanying photos are from one morning during this year's Key West Race Week. We were putting our boat in the water and we thud-boom-bang, closely followed by eerie silence and some guy trying to lift the rig off of the wire. No sparks or injuries (short of his pride). I have been told the Quantum van was a loaner vehicles that was only used to move the boat. Regardless, the name is on the boat. Rob at Quantum has all the answers, please ask him for specifics.

 

Also, this wasn't the only Melges 24 stick to come down during the week, due to power lines. The other boat faired a lot worse and I saw it permanently parked after it's incident.
