TRAGIC SINKING of Classic Sailing Yacht "PPALU"

Video on the sinking and recovery of Ppalu and a bit of history on this interesting Peter Spronk designed catamaran.

TRAGIC SINKING of Classic Sailing Yacht "PPALU", St Maarten / St Martin, SXM, CARIBBEAN - YouTube

This is a VERY recent occurrence, and all that know Randy West might consider some words of encouragement for the rebuild process,...again in only 3 months since last one.

I've only just discovered this. I'm amazed there are no comments on it. Heart goes out to them.

Not a new event but a new video. Very well done, makes your heart go out to them. Impressed they had the resolve to continue. A real head turner, saw her in the Bahamas last summer. We circled around her in the dingy but no one was aboard, 150hp outboard for power. Wish them the best with their continuing refit.
