Ouch!

A casualty of high winds during the storm in New England yesterday was the Tall Ship Providence. It actually got blown over in Newport.

In my experience with larger repair jobs with previous boats (a lightning strike and also extensive hurricane damage) these things take WAY longer than you think at first.

Greetings,
Mr. NM. "...things take WAY longer..." One way of determining repair time is estimate the time in hours, double it and convert this figure to days. Still underestimated IMO.
