The "Bat" (a.k.a. Turbo Squirrel) jury rig did the trick for the Sydney 41 El Syd in what Navigator Craig Dymock described as a "completely mad voyage!" It was a titanic struggle against the elements for the eight guys on board, when, on Day 1, the steering broke, then, on Day 2, the boom fell off. Despite setting up a temporary repair, the steering went again on Day 3, and on Day 4 they hove too for three hours to administer further repairs. The Day 4 repairs, which involved the use of a pump handle and a wardrobe rail, lasted until Day 9, when a broom handle was added to the equation, which finally remedied the situation for good.
