Yacht Vacations

Following we dropped the rudder, we describe what happened and answer inquiries. Ep. 46 Hilma Sailing





We had a great deal of function to do in Majuro, after the rudder loss in the open ocean. A great deal of items had to be repaired and exchanged and we ended up pleased that we managed to arrive at the Marshall Islands. In the atoll we also celebrated Xmas and New Several years and then we bought the cyclone waring..

  1. A lot of people sail pretty far in complex and sensetive vessels that are not primarily designed to take a beating and I think they all take a calculated risk of ending up in exactly this situation. The opposite is a safe formula for an ocean crossing. A steel hull and at least a rudder on a skeg where you can hit a log or a stray container in the night without too much worries. Everyting else is russian roulette for the benefits of one or two knots.

  3. With a Hallberg-Rassy, Najad or Faurby, that wouldn't have happened to you.

  4. So the stray DC current from you compass corroded your rudder shaft?

  5. The important thing is that you prevailed. Well done.

  6. Don’t know your steering set up but is there a way to insert a plastic or rubber bushing on the rudder stock where the chain connects to stop any future electrical current?

  17. So a broken wire from a compass light could have cost you the boat. Crazy. I remember that video about a family who lost their rudder in the atlantic. They had to abandon their boat, which was all they possessed. I am not sure but it looked like their marriage broke too.

  18. So crazy! You guys did a wonderful job getting through it and being able to continue.

  19. My old Windpilot Atlantic can be used as an emergency rudder also in case of emergency.

  22. If you have not seen the video called "Emergency Steering with a Drogue", I urge you to look at it. This is shown at the Safety at Sea Seminars whose attendance is required by at lease two members of each boat crew for the Newport Bermuda Race. Take a look. https://bermudarace.com/emergency-steering-drogue-new-approach/

  23. Had another thought. Look up SV Emerald Steel where they have an episode where they turn 2 used tires into attractive deck chairs / fenders and a bullet proof drouge. Cheap and multi purpose

  24. Next time you guys have good internet look-up the youtube video about the Garcia 45 Exploration. They have a bracket on the back which is designed to accept an outboard motor, a hydro generator and probably could accept an attachment point for an emergency tiller.

  26. I still can't believe this terrible thing happened to you guys,and it was a huge effort to get to shore.I can only imagine the fear you must have had,and you must have been exhausted by the time you finally made it to land.So pleased you did make it safely,and repairs went along well,and most of all,you were able to resume sailing around the world.Best wishes🙂
