Seafevers first new hole

My !^%^*^#^*##($($&&^*(_+()&)__ mooring neighbor had a motor problem and instead of getting a tow thought he would try his had a sailing into and TIGHT mooring field

Well it could have been worse BUT his bow pulpit punched a fist size hole right between the two main Portlights


Everybody at the yard thought somebody called me and we went out to go sailing and opened up the cabin to a nice pile of paint and glass shards

He is being good about it so far and we will see what the glass guy says this week :rolleyes:


Unfortunately cracked and delaminated into the unobtainium window frame which will have to be disturbed to do a repair as there is a good bit of bad glass under the interior gelcoat
