So this trimaran drifted in off the ocean inverted and dismasted, and washed up on a reef at Albuquerque Cay about 25 miles SSW of San Andres, Colombia... it was towed in to the main harbour where today, April 27, 2020 it was brought over to the shipping port dock so a heavy crane could be used to bring the vessel back upright.
Another comment:This is the Angel Bee. It departed from Curacao in mid-March en route to (Perth) Australia after a refit in Curacao. Shortly after leaving Curacao the Coast Guard spotted her adrift and taking on water somewhere near Aruba. The Coast Guard sent a helicopter to lift her crew of two off the boat and left the Angel B. abandoned. The last Coast Guard photo showed her up right and with her mast intact.
I have been on that boat: it is the Angel B and was owned by our friends Arth & Susan. They recently sold it and the new owners, in an inexperienced way, wanted to sail immediately (after the boat spent a long time doing nothing) in one go to New Zealand or something like that. Our friends circumnavigated with it.
That would be the skeg that protects the rudder when it's beached.Anyone know what the extra little appendage is behind the swing center board?
Seems to be a lot of water pouring out of the centreboard case as they right it, that window might be open.During that tow the new owner discovered her making water through an inspection window in the daggerboard which apparently was
too close to the waterline.
If anything is going to happen, it is going to happen out there...Needed some waves to get the ingress started?
