It's proof that people who say a bad day sailing is better than a good day at work are idiots.

90' sailboat ran into the Los Olas bridge in Ft Lauderdale a few days ago. Sprit, headstay damage, not to bad. Had a mechanical issue apparently.

The adjuster should question GMT's engineering. There's enough of a stump left to send to a reputable firm for examination..

Guaranteed there's a screw up. My bet is not enough +/-45's IF ANY.

You can't tell by the photo, but you can tell by the end result. This spar failed and twisted right out of the boat. Twist in carbon spars is prevented by the off-axis unidirectional laminations which any reputable spar maker will tell you must run plus and minus 45 degrees the entire length of the spar. If there are not enough of these +/- 45's, or they are at a shallower angle, or the order of lamination is screwed up, or any combination of these, twisting can occur and the spar can ultimately fail.

 

I bet you'd never find a Hall or Offshore spar destroyed like this.

 

This link is old news, but fascinating reading. This twisting was actually built-in at the shop and clearly an engineering and manufacturing failure by the same company.
