IS this what Jono did when he flipped that rib over
or is this just general advice he gives out. Has he done some offshore sailing and thought about having to abandone his pride and joy.
It would seem from folks that know the skipper that he had done several Atlantic crossings prior to this happenning. I think that he would have had quite a bit of time sitting on board for 40 days to come up with a solution to the problem. The fact that he couldn't during all that time probably means there wasn't an option.
What is a concealed rudder? thought that rudders were on the outside of the hull and normally exposed to water to enable them to work.
