    yes, cargo containers.. they can be knocked of the carriers in rough seas, and it happens that they do not sink but like an ice berg keep floating as air gets trapped in them. Problem is that you can not spot them and the sharp corners rip open the haul of a yacht like a can opener

    Sorry, I meant that I recenly rebuilt a rudder of an old Westerly 30 footer. I think the rudder itself should break before the hull stock area.

    The Canadians and Aussies will always come and help. Terrrible to loose yer boat like that. A whale? Wouldn't have thought so - but of course possible. More likely an underwater piece of timber. But wouldn't the keel have provided protection for the rudder? Very strange. After having rebuilt a keel recently my verdict is that the keel would normally have buckled before the area in the hull around the stock would have done. But this was an old Westerly and very heavily laid up.

    bet it was a submerged container, they sit at water level and there are thousands of them out there.

    This is why I bought an ETAP although now sadly defunct company. Supposedly won't sink although it has a spade rudder. I keep thinking of glassing in a sealable compartment around the rudder stock for just such situations. I wish it had a full keel/skeg rudder...that would be just about bulletproof.

    FLS is useless in ocean and would not help with whale collision (whale unlikely attack from the front). It does not work well in shallow water either (to much interference from the waves). Quite limited functionality in same coastal areas for practical use. IMHO Nothing replace good seamanship and a bit luck.

    The water currents are stronger in the ocean.

    Forward looking sonar is great to have on your boat to see things out to 1500 ft in front of you.
