Re: Hull and damage done!!!

All's well that ends well.

Have you analysed what went wrong on the first outing and learned the lessons?

Yup watch your tides I should have been looking at the color of the rocks instead of the sea lions.

Good lesson. "Don't hit anything" is about the only rule for the helm on our boat. Misdirection and distraction is the root of a lot of things very bad.

Re: Hull and Damage Done !!!

Looks much better now than it did before.

After patiently asking HWMO to fix the nose on my beachcat for over two years, I finally ran it up on the rocks last month... Job got done pronto, and looks much better now. Sometimes drastic measures are needed....

Re: Hull and Damage Done !!!

But if the keel front were of a different design ;-) there would have been way less damage ;-). Ask Scandinavians!

Good job. Reminds me of our early cruising days back in 2003 ;-))))

Cheers,
