Have to appreciate positive flotation in your vessel. This Pearson Ensign swamped in Lake Superior last night 8/20/15). The crew were rescued from the water by the USCG, but the ship was abandoned. A group of us geared up to see if a salvage of the vessel was possible.
The photo attached shows the boat under tow 2 miles into a 3 mile journey. Happy to report that everyone is safe and that the boat was successfully bailed out at harbor. The jib and main sails were not so lucky and had to be cut loose.
It could have been worse!
