Sounds like there's a 46-foot salvage opportunity out by Sale Cay.

So BlueStocking -- did you ever figure out what the CG action was near Bermuda?

This isn't what Blue Stocking saw beginning, but an indication of how high the winds were, I think:

Early this morning [Dec 16] the sailboat ‘Summer Delight’ was rescued after the person aboard made a distress call to the Bermuda Maritime Operation Centre at 4:30am, after the boat dragged her anchor and became grounded near Smith’s Island. The boat had one person aboard, and sustained heavy damage to the keel and rudder.
Officials describe the conditions at the time as quite “treacherous,” with winds were gusting to 50 knots at the time and three-foot seas were reported. The pilot boat St. David’s came to the rescue and towed the sailboat to Ordnance Island, where it is presently docked.

The same boat came to attention last month, when it experienced difficulties approximately 47 nautical miles north-east of Bermuda.
