Made a fooling call trying to beat the retreating tide in Alvor estuary in Portugal
I was worried that water
would come in over the cockpit
coaming when the tide came in, as it turns out fully laden she behaved like a saint and mocked me for even worrying.
No damage to the paint
work, took on some water
through some fittings or water tank vents as the boat tipped over.
Would suggest doing it on your boat in protected waters just for peace of mind when it's serious .... not a nice way to spend 12 hours in the cold however!
Full run down can be found at Yarrrgh … we be grounded!!
