Friday's race was an effort and a half I believe, somehow managed to sail about 20-odd metres on the bows alone...meaning only 2 foot of boat was in the water, the rest was out!
Cheers

Safe to say Fridays race didn't go to plan for me!
Broken batten eyelet on a sail that's not even 12 months old.
Snapped a pin on a rubber on the way to the start line,
Causing major issues.
Got to the shore and put a hole in the port hull.
Good times!
Cheers to PIRATE for the help getting her back on the water
For the weekend, didn't look pretty but sure beats not sailing!

your welcome grin
wasn't going to leave you sitting on the beach for an instant, it was just a question of how to fix all the damaged bits.
confused

Your dad was the inspiration on the gapping hole all I did there was screw it together...... luck played a huge part in putting it back on the water as it did taking it out of the race....

As it turned out we were damn lucky the shop in the middle of no-where had the cartridge and gun to suit and even luckier was I actually had a drill the exact right size for that pin, even better was the fact that it was good enough to drill right through that stainless shaft
grin

Friday night was certainly a busy night for busted bits n pieces sick


You should upload the pics of your damage and the repairs, just so people know there aint nothing we cant overcome

Most would have packed up and gone home.... Big gash in a spot that's nowhere near an internal access point and certainly not an easy quick fix !

With this happening just minutes from to the start of race 1 of a long weekends racing, there was no other option other than to turn a blind eye and make the fix as best we could.....

1 cordless drill
~ dozen philips-head screws
1 scrap of 3mm ply

a desperate search at the outback store scored us....

1 tube of roof & gutter silicone
&
1 caulking gun to suit
and all for a measily $10 grin


remember......

we wern't there to win "Best Presented"
we were there to sail

wink

WARNING

Some viewers may become sick at the site of the following pics

sick







Phil and I start the 'fix' ......

A/ smear silicone all around the gash
B/ screw the ply on slowly moving it around the curve of the hull
C/ smooth off the excess silicon and lay a thin coat over the exposed bare ply
D/ park nearish the campfire and allow to dry overnight

Ugly as it is...... not a single drop of water got into that hull for the entire w/end and Al got to do the rest of the races without any issues at all.

If I had the misfortune to be holed like that I probably would have given up.

Great effort to get back on the water. I admire your ingenuity!

it was amazing to see everyone jump in and assist with repairs at Bolac,(there were a few required)it shows what a great community sailing attracts.
