Lost my favorite hat, And in the fury of jibing attemping to recovery about 2'of traveler track peeled off the crossbar. The next day I replaced the crossbar with a spare. Unfortunately I did not tie up the mast rotation when I launched the boat. The boom gooseneck bent beyond recogition but I did manage to get a couple of runs in across the harbor. the attachment is In memory of the lost hat

Just about broke my leg! During a good attempt at a pitchpole my leg slid under the boat in front of the dagger. Since the boat was still moving the water slammed my leg against the dagger...5 stitches and lots of bruises..

Last Summer, a wind storm came up in the middle of the night. This is what we found the next am. Mast was bent in a 90 degree angle and had aprox $2,800 damage. After pulling the boats apart, we quickly raised sail on the other boats and had a great day sailing. Needless to say, I now anchor my boat down to the beach.

Dave,

I thought I was the only one who did that! I was sailing with my brother last year on our Nacra 5.2. I stuffed the bows hard into a wave (my fault). He stumbled forward on the trapeze and dragged his back foot in the water to regain his balance. The daggerboard hit his leg and instantly caused a black golf-ball sized knot on the side of his shin (which grew to tennis-ball size and more colors). That was the end of our sailing for the day. I was wondering if anyone else ever managed to injure their crew in this manner.

Talk to you later

Fractures and a big crack on the aft beam of our 94' Marstrom Tornado..

A bit scared about drilling the replacement profile we got. Unless we do it just right, we will ruin a perfectly good beam. Anybody with a great way to set this up before we drill it ? We are thinking about strapping the old and the new beam together and square it up. Then drill trough the old holes. But we are looking for better ideas!

Nothing broken but for good luck only.

It would have been a nice, though a little cold (New Years Day in New Jersey) sail in the bay but for a small problem.

We had launched the boat and were suiting up on the beach when the crew says, "Where's the boat?" "Right over there" says I pointing about a half mile out and down the beach. Under nothing but the mast, it was on a starboard tack and making about 2 kts. The GPS was on the boat but unfortunately not on. I was amazed at how well it was sailing.....about 90 degrees to the wind, a nice beam reach and steady as she goes. The rudders were in the up position but the boat was still well balanced. She seemed to have a destination in mind and was doing a fine job of sailing but her crew were not in the plan.

There was a large New Year's party going on a deck overlooking the scene. The boat provided a good deal of entertainment as it's not something you see every day. They decided to call the marine patrol and the coast guard because they thought that there might be some humans involved somewhere. Luckily they saw us, wetsuit, harness and PFD clad and boatless and made the connection before they got the Coast Guard.

The revelers kept a glass on the boat and suggested a way of retrieving her. To make a long story short; the boat put ashore about 2 miles from the ramp on an island that was accessible after a rather arduous drive, hike, wade....

We rigged the boat and the crew did the wade, hike, drive back to the ramp. I received a totally undeserved standing ovation from the party as I soloed the boat back to the beach.

I am sending this story to an old Air Force buddy of mine as he had a similar experience with an Air Force Fighter. You can see and read about it in the Air Force Museum in Dayton Ohio.

I've seen that F106 a couple times at the museum. Was you buddy the pilot? Here's the link to the plane and it's story at the museum

Yea, that's the one. My buddy dosn't talk about the incident much. The story is pretty much accurate. He actually got to fly the plane again later at the 49th at Griffis Air Force Base. I heard that one of the other pilots on the mission said "get back in G***" as the aircraft recovered from the spin. There are more possibilities as to what caused the a/c to recover after the ejection. Personally I think it was the spoiling of the normal lift caused by the forward part of the fuselage when the canopy was no longer on the plane. Interestingly enough, the engine was still running and the aircraft creeping forward in the snow when the State Police got on the scene. They coordinated with their dispatcher and the AF command post to find out how to shut the engine down. I have about 2500 hrs in the 106 and though I never spun it, I was in a few wicked post stall girations and was flying formation with another friend when he jumped out of one that was on fire, so I know that was quite a ride....

When the Air Force had it 40th anniversairy back in 1987, Wright Patterson AFB had a big open house / mini air show. They rolled the planes out of the annex hanger that day and I had my photo taken by the F-106.
Your 2500 hours in a F-106 is very impressive. It's always been a favorite plane of mine. (I don't fly them....I just admire them)
