capsize

Hi everyone,

I am looking at cruising good ol 3430, but want to work out a better arrangement should we tip over.   The current thought is to tow the boat to a dock, not much help in cruising.

Has anyone ever thought about adding supplemental floatation?  That would seem to reduce the amount of bailing required?   Extra inflation float.

Do you have the bow flotation

Do you have the bow flotation bag, that is now required for racing? Also, the float for the head of the sail can help prevent turtling. If the boat stays on it's side, and you right it, you can avoid a lot of bailing. The swim ladder option allows you to get back in the boat more easily. These items can be gotten, along with great advice from Flying Scot Inc. Phil
