Shackle?Being able to handle a fast squirrelly boat is not a license to be a douche.thanks for making my pointReally?. That is the lamest excuse I've heard since the Bill Clinton "But I didn't inhale" answer.People complaining here could probable not even get a M32 off the dock let alone race one.Before getting out the pitchforks and/or torches, how much room was actually there to thread the M32's through there? I'm not trying to justify their behavior, but it may not have been as bad as the Opti dad doing play by play went on about. After all, they DID make it through without squashing any small children.
Too bad the coach in the RIB didn't have a broken shackle on hand. You chuck it up into the sails so it drops to the deck. Then you can watch all the big time crew on the Melges scramble around trying to figure out what broke.
Dude you are stuck in so last century
