Metal on deck

By Rob

The morning after the Bertram fire in Morro Bay I found this hunk of metal on the deck.
It looked important and broken.



I scratched my head and looked aloft,  "Is this part of Shindig's rig?"
I feared that it could be part of the main halyard swivel that I've had issue with in the past.  The swivel is a unique piece, long out of production that could be big issue to source.

Nancy hauled me up the mast and the swivel is in good shape as are all the other fittings on the mast.


There is still a mystery to be solved.
Perhaps in the rush to untie from the burning boat something broke loose on the Bertram and landed on our deck.

I don't like these puzzles.

  1. Maybe all it is a piece of junk a seagull dropped on deck....realizing it wasn't food.
