Post by Quetzalcoatl »

During Last Wednesday's storm (kind of Like a short lasting Category 1 hurricane on Dec 15th at night), my 110% Jib got Ripped to Shreads!

My sailboat was in the marina in the parking lot,(with the jib furlow reefed on the spindle drum thing). Yes, I should have removed it, but I was Lazy and I LOST it! Well it's still attached to the forestay, in pieces.

I guess I should have put up the storm jib!

Now it's time for Winter things!

Quetzalcoatl out.
