Glad you and your Dad are ok....... Boats can be fixed or replaced. I had a friend on a Catalina 22 (Blue and red Sharks Tooth painted on the bows) who took pics, saw you in some of them. He made it back with some damage to his boat.

I need to brag on how well our boat held up. If the bay had been deeper where we were then the comptip would have mostlikely not broken off from hitting the bottom. I'm guessing the water was only 6-10 feet deep where we flipped. The sail had ripped in the mast track where the aluminum and comptip come together and some battens were broken. Other than those few things that was it.



Nice work staying cool and getting that broken boat back to shore! I have been caught in a 60mph gust a couple times now.. both times followed by 30mph winds.. but both times it was on a smaller inland lake, and nothing even remotely like the videos I have seen around.. the wave action and sheer power ya'll were able to survive.. That is simply incredible.
