Which one(s) broke, and where?
The bacardi boat you could see a two inch section with cracks on both sides running horzontally down the boat at the fattest point. Down both sides. Like the deck trying to leave the hull.
Looked so straight that you would think it a taped joint on the inside over a seam, the tape being the strongest part and fracturing occuring above and below it.
Terry (V3) lost his mirrors and the trim reservior bottle broke up ditching the oil to the bilges and stopping the trim system. A wing working loose. The washers caved into cones shapes as the bolts tried to pull through.
Someone else retired with a split fuel tank. Colourama?? I think this boat also had the stress marks down the side. But not anywhere near as bad as the first boat.
Dave arthur, Im told the wheel came into his chest, didnt know whether it was the whole dash assy that came adrift, then.
