Zingaro suffered catastrophic damage in a storm on route to Hawaii. In this live stream we will update You about our current situation.
The boat is in a disastrous shape. All the cross stringers in the starboard hull are broken, bridgedeck is ripped to centerline, most bulkheads are broken. Basically the starboard hull ripped off.
