Don’t try this with plastic…

It could have been an advertisement for steel hull boats. This steel hull yacht was rammed by a freighter off the Canary Islands. The French crew of three were unharmed, and were able to jury-rig a mast and make it to the port of Las Palmas. Had they been sailing in Tupperware, I doubt they would have lived to tell. Needless to say, my boat is going to have a steel hull.
