I noticed Wild Oats had what I would call a guy rope that held the head of the Code 0 forward as they raised it up to the lock.    Rope went from sprit to top of mast.


Seems like a nice trick to keep from having crew feeding it up and keeping it forward.  Is the common?  Don't recall seeing something like that used before.


This link should take you to the spot showing what i am asking about in the start footage.  If not it is at 43:36

I like this one.  Nice ruberized case.  Also some slightly different models available.

I just did a quick scan of the GB bankruptcy documents and did not see Hall as a creditor.  They were listed as having received about $125K of payments in the last 90 days before filing.


I recall at least one 55 that was left waiting for a rig until payment was made.  Hall may have priced the product based on orders for 10+ rigs absorbing upfront costs so they may not have made much on the rigs that were  were delivered but from what I see Hall knew what they were deailing with down at GB and did not extend much credit.
