The worst month ever

#253781 by masonsailor2 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 1:11 pm

Well October will go down as my worst in many years. First the car accident that totaled my truck and then our sailboat gets rammed while still in the slip. One our boat neighbors lost all hydraulic controls while coming down the fairway and rammed into our sailboat at about 5 knots. Completely took out the back of our boat including the dinghy and outboard. His 150 tons vs our 40 tons. So far we are up to about $110,000 in damage. It’s all fixable but we will be in the boatyard for several months. Hopefully we got all the bad luck out of the way for a long while.

Wow, Paul, let’s hope that you haven’t caught Roamer46’s luck with boats! :eek:

For some reason, I thought you had sold your boat before you moved to Las Vegas. Are (were) you still sailing?
