Does anybody wait until the storm is at it's strongest to put out the storm sail?
But seriously, anyone that has that much bad luck, really shouldn't be out on the water
Didn't have an engine, they pulled it out to make room for the cameraman.
He climbed the mast to try to get the radio
working and found that the last time he had it up in a slip he'd forgotten to do the cable up. Then he realized he'd brought up the wrong spanner.
A drogue doesn't operate in wind, it operates in the water such as with a currant.
