Sorry bro I don’t mean to pile on and I am far from the safety champion here but the second paragraph is concerning. Make sure you don’t get lulled into a false sense of security. This year has been both the best weather and best tuna fishing I’ve ever seen in my life.
If you lose that main from the thousand possible ways to disable it and get into weather you’re going the fuck overboard. The stabi should float well enough but I don’t think it has any magical powers to keep it upright when wind waves stack on that weak little 5ft swell that just built to 10.
It's alright man. You didn't offend me. As I said before I appreciate the concern. And I spend enough time on the ocean and in my boat that i know my boat can't save me from making stupid decisions. I certainly don't feel unsinkable or invincible when I'm out there. And when I start to feel uncomfortable I head for port.
That being said, I fish 10 foot swells out of Neah Bay frequently with a little wind chop .
Seriously though thanks for looking out bro.
