Failure of Mainsail Flotation
I had the experience of viewing the bottom of my Scot yesterday. I was surprised since I had the mainsail flotation in place. I broached with the spinnaker up. The boat went over in a big gust. The boat briefly floated on her side while I was standing on the centerboard trunk trying to climb over the side to bring her back over. The boat then turtled. When I finally recovered the boat and gear, it seemed that the flotation was "soggy" and had absorbed a fair amount of water that could be wrung out. I can't remember exactly how old the mainsail flotation is, but i bought it soon after it was available.
Has anyone heard of this happening[:(!]
