 see  my new forum posting , repeated below.

I came across some recent posting on 'you tube' by one of the larger Sailing magazines in the UK   'Yachting Monthly'.

They bought and old Jenneau 40 and subjected it to  real world sailing disasters and tried to see how to get thru' the problem.

The filming leaves a lot to be desired as they are rather long, ponderous and slow but the information is very interesting if you don't fall asleep watching.

They did a simulated a roll over/capsize,broken thru hull, holing, fire on board, dismasting, jury rig, and gas explosion(worth seeing). They then displayed the remains of the boat at the 2012 London boat show.

here are just a few of the links to the videos

there are 10-15 videos but as usual you tube is so disorganised it hard to watch them in order or even find them all.
Enjoy , Warren-Warp Drive
