I feel for the team on White Noise (retired). “Window damage” at sea is one scary ass proposition.
Yeah, but in these conditions?

We had window damage in 1970 - the liefraft was ripped from it's mounts and broke a cabin window - but the anemometer was pegged at 70 knots at the time, and the window was armoured glass, so it split but stayed in place.

I reckon it’s either a front hatch that got stepped (jumped) on, or one big boy stepped on a coach roof window/hatch as the boat over a wave. Bloke went up, boat went down… gravity plus human = broken window.

Wind over tide out there is no joke.

Denali heading north east at 1.5kts now too... Feeling good about hopping in to bed tonight after all. Hoping a couple of these tracks are just sorting fixable things out

Yeah, cracking in their hull, they let off a pan pan about 40 mins ago while I was listening on the radio.

Denali saying their cracks are moving and they have prepared their liferafts should they need to abandon ship.
