Great Red Shark
Down goes Frasier!
yeah its gut wrenching,kind of sick though. the sound of a shroud popping. not a good one.
Shootz. I didnt even realize that was Honolulu. I should have noticed. lol. Poor buggah.Well then you ought to know better! How long do you think he's gonna wait for a new spar to be shipped to HNL?
I don't remember which boat or who was onboard, and it was more of a graze than a direct hit. The next day, I do remember climbing down the bank at Magic Island and wading out to that rock. I was standing inside the channel with that marker behind me closer to the land. Rocks on an island made from millions of years of volcanic eruptions: who knew they'd be five entire feet from shore?The rig did not. That sharp crack heard was the mast tube failing. Shrouds held - remember, Carbon is stiff - and stiff means brittle.
Hawaiifins - I don't recall grounding you in the channel - did you go sailing without me? (miss ya, both)
