Using five plywood locker covers, I was able to board up the chasm from the outside. By drilling and securing metal screws through the plywood covers into the fiberglass coach roof, we were able to cover the breach. Our primary worry was whether another big wave might hit us before we could close the opening, but fortunately, the wave never came. After pumping her out, we spent a long, cold night fighting hypothermia, as all our bedding was soaked with cold salt water. In the morning, we completed our steering repairs and were on our way, hoping to find Land’s End and the English Channel. All our electronics were drowned, including our VHF, leaving us nothing but a somewhat damaged sextant for navigation. I was able to readjust the alignment and started to get fixes that I hoped were correct. Two days later, the Bishop Rock lighthouse was a welcome sight indeed.
