    Does anyone know where Mojo is now? Did she survive the damage or was she scrapped?

    Frankly, I think it was poor judgement on the part of the skipper to try and make it out on such a big day. Yes, it is fortunate they made it out ok, physically. I used to live in San Luis Obispo, about 20 minutes from Morro Bay, and I can tell you from experience that waves that large do not come in the rogue variety. I have been out by the rock (scaled down version of the Rock Of Gibralter) when waves have been breaking over that jetty-- we're talking 25ft+ at that point. That day, the coast guard would not try to get out-- the waves were wrapping around the jetty and resulting in 8-10 ft a-frame barrels rolling through the channel leading into the harbor-- truly amazing stuff.

    Mojo was repaired and I see her almost every day now in Newport Beach doing day charters and harbour cruises.
    tough old girl I guess!

    Thanks Yotphix - it's always good to hear when boats survive. Let's hope the same is true of Legacy!

    Cabo Flats Master

    Guys,

    Here is the new Cabo Flats Master. At least, it is supposedly a Cabo. Maybe someone knows the story here. This apparently happened last August.

    Looks as though mud and weeds are a decent medium for propellors to provide thrust in. Too bad they coudn't overcome the friction of the grass against the hull.
    Still, I think there is an easier way to transport your yacht overland.

    This looks like a classic case of panic on the part of the sailboat skipper. It would appear that if he had turned to Starboard that he would have probably been OK.

    Testiment to keeping your eyes open and having a cool head.

    It has been said that during docking manuevres the control lost (it is not clear yet whether it was due to mechanical/electronic poblem or bad handling) and a serious scissure occured.

    Oh, thats too bad. What a beautiful yacht.
    I wonder if the hull is ruptured.
    I would assume they'd get some slings around it and lift her up and off whatever she's hung up on.

    Oops

    This is what probably happens when you forget to put the bung in and your bildge pump stops working.
