I never considered that a whale could sink a catamaran.

Foam cored Atlantic 46? I’m guessing she’s still very afloat.

Sperm whales, when hit have been known to attack and sink sailboats. Doesn't happen often but it does happen.

It was a good story, there on noonsite. I felt pleased they remembered to say "thank you" to the longliner and the Roro.
