After the storm
The storm of September 18 - gusting to 48 kts from the south according to the Execution Rocks buoy - sent a bunch of boats adrift at City Island.  One of them snagged the forestay of my North River 2, taking her mast down. (click pix to enlarge and for slideshow)

Restless - no one aboard

Ouch! Sorry to hear about the dismasting! That's a shame.

ditto what Richard said. Glad you weren't aboard and no one hurt. She'll be better than ever when fixed again.

Ditto what Richard said George. Glad you weren't aboard when it occurred, and that no one was hurt. She'll be better than ever when the new mast is stepped.

That was one strange and dangerously windy day around here.
