Does anyone who sailed with me on San Conrado remember the night we hit a huge wave and the bow sustained quite significant damage ie the focastle deck was bowed and stanchions bent the two foward derricks lifted out off their mountings and bulwarks bent backwards I have photos taken at the time.I had been on lookout at the time on the top of wheelhouse 5mins prior to the wave hitting had I still been up there I dont think I would still be here to tell this tale .
