A yacht /ˈjɒt/ is a recreational boat or ship..
Very difficult time for them Very sad.
Learn what a yacht is 😀
Abandon Ship !
not really a yaght
I was referring to the specific hull design of a skeg-hung rudder. It’s much harder to break your rudder and as a result hole your boat by collision with an underwater object of any kind if you’ve got a skeg in front.
Boats with unprotected rudders are faster and turn better, but they’re fairly vulnerable to this sort of (admittedly rare) occurrence.
is there a professional set up for that available?
Always cruise with a protected rudder.
sunk by a whale? really?
always sail in convoy
they did it by the book. stepping up in to the life raft. however with all the boats about could no one take a look to see why it was sinking and bail?
Sad to see. Why did I see this today? I think a bad day for me. But Nina reminder. Can’t beat nature. Needs prayers though. and saw “Pray for Missing Nina Yacht with 7 Americans on-board” at ocaeninvitesyou.blogspot.com.
yes, cargo containers.. they can be knocked of the carriers in rough seas, and it happens that they do not sink but like an ice berg keep floating as air gets trapped in them. Problem is that you can not spot them and the sharp corners rip open the haul of a yacht like a can opener
Sorry, I meant that I recenly rebuilt a rudder of an old Westerly 30 footer. I think the rudder itself should break before the hull stock area.
The Canadians and Aussies will always come and help. Terrrible to loose yer boat like that. A whale? Wouldn’t have thought so – but of course possible. More likely an underwater piece of timber. But wouldn’t the keel have provided protection for the rudder? Very strange. After having rebuilt a keel recently my verdict is that the keel would normally have buckled before the area in the hull around the stock would have done. But this was an old Westerly and very heavily laid up.
Mine sank today :(
Recorded by authorities and used in the insurance claim.
im more wondering where that lady’s paints were
bet it was a submerged container, they sit at water level and there are thousands of them out there.
sad day for that couple…hope they can recover and get back out
shame poor fuckers
