I had the opportunity to crawl all over Bullimore's Cat (I assume it was the same one) when it was in Hobart prior to his previous (aborted) attempt at the solo RTW record
. I have to say, it was not a craft that I would have chosen to go to sea in... so much so, in fact that I declined an offer of a sail into Storm Bay and back, especially since I ws aware that they had, a few days before, dropped the carbon fibre mast
some distance onto a concrete wharf (the lifting strop broke) and put it back in the boat without, as far as I know, anything more than a cursory visual inspection
. Ho hum.
