The Last Voyage of Solar Wind
"I was told that a 46 foot Ketch had dragged her anchor and was leaning all over my Flicka in the North wind. The taxi owner had cut my anchor rode and dragged Solar Wind to a new location . I was taken to my boat to survey the damage and I can only say that a collision between a 46 footer and a 20 footer does not leave a pretty picture. While the damage to the rigging was extensive, the hull appeared to have only suffered cosmetic damage. The bowsprit was broken in half, the stanchions were bent, the life lines were broken, the pushpit was collapsed and the bimini was collapsed. One chain plate was broken so the upper shrouds were loose but the mast was supported by the fore and aft lowers."
