Re: Capsize

Otter915 Thanks for the tips. I am thinking that some sort of airtight cover over the forward deck compartments may help as they are currently open and useful for storage.

Hi, only took the boat over on Sunday. Hope to get down to her in next day or so and try rigging. Can't sail at the moment because of blue green algae at club. :( I will take some more pictures then.
