And..... DOWN !!!!!



This storm saw 3-4 footers rolling through the Falmouth mooring field on 10-14-2010. This is what just 3-4 footers will do to a 30+ foot boat.


The sprit of this boat was literally diving under water as she crested a wave then dove into the trough. During one of these dives she caught one of the poorly secured anchors, a Delta, that was left on the bow sprit and hooked it with one of the pendants thus ripping it free.
