..checked on the Compac 23 at the harbor today, and found the starboard rear lower shroud missing. Gone. Nothing but the tang on the mast and the chain plate on the deck left. I'm not sure what's wierder, thinking somebody climbed the mast, stole a shroud, or wondering how the cotter rings top and bottom could work open and loose, both pins fall out, and everything go overboard ! Harbor reviewing security cameras but doubt that will show anything.

This kinda stuff only happens to me..

That is odd.
I'd like to think it fell off.

Odd stuff happens everywhere.

I'm inclined to agree. We had a day of buffeting high winds, and there are scratches on the mast. I probably missed something in rigging, the lower end got loose, and whipped around till it pinched and broke the retaining ring at the upper end and it's all in the water. Embarassed

Oh well 121.75 to Hutchins on the charge card and we're good..

(Chrysler related content - I'm stalking a local Honda 9.9 to buy for EE, we decided there's no point in repairing the horribly leaking hull deck joint until there's a decent motor in hand. )

....well...I made a grappling drag with 4 storage hooks from the blue hardware store and my swimming pool cleaning pole. And on the first drag alongside the boat I snagged and retrieved the missing side stay in 8 feet of water !! So 2 new retaining rings somehow got loose, and she went overboard.
Crazy things happen I guess.

That is very good to hear!
I prefer an accidental loss versus a theft any day!

Glad you recovered it!
