WOW, wonder how fast the boat was after losing the keel

This isn't an early April's Fool joke is it?

Is it not also testament to how much people motor rather than sail... but maybe lucky they did not sail... so much faster under motor.... lol

Wow...nobody even noticed the change in the waterline or how much more the boat rolls? That's too funny.

Yep, you'd think that the operator would have noticed that it was harder to step up from the dock/dinghy onto the now much higher deck!

One wonders if this REALLY happened... honestly, if they were sailing in 12 knots, even broad reaching with the engine on, wouldn't it be seriously compromised?

I guess that this story reinforces our practice of giving bare-boaters a wide berth when we encounter them! Hell, they might tip over on you!

Cheers,
