Busted Boat



Thanks to Scott for letting me know it's not just bicycles that are experience carbon fiber failures. This is Carl & Carol's boat after breaking the mast. To put costs into perspective, the mast is worth about 6 or 7 Trek Madones. Ouch, I always knew sailing was expensive.

When I crewed on boats, I had a boat builder explain to me how they worked out what compnents to fit to a racing boat.
You start with the smallest component possible, when that breaks you go to the next size up, when that breaks, you go to the next size up. When you stop breaking components, you go back a step. If you can't break it, it's too heavy.
