Sad but true.

What dramatic photo's, guys.   I know how you must feel.

The good news, of course is the recovery of your craft afterwards.  They do seem to be resilient and tend Not to have any lasting effects of their submersion.

All the best

Kenny,

My Reculver tramp steamer was almost one of the casualties as well, the after well deck was awash by the time I got her to the bank and when I opened her up she was half full of water including a submerged Maplins speed controller. I dried her out overnight and found that everything worked except the RX which is an old Futaba M series and I had a spare one of those. The RX had some water in it so it might return to life now that I've opened it up and run the hair dryer over it. Normally the boat is a good seakeeper but the wind was laying her over right on her side with the boat deck submerged. She is only 4 inches wide anyway!

that would have been TOO rough for Celestia or Gemini, and Yamato well forget it, waves that high would be riding over her turrets. in that respect im glad I sailed where i did this weekend.
