    Built to Last

    Two weeks ago I was in 40 kt winds and solid 14 footers. We hit a huge one a little too fast and we slammed down extremly hard. It trashed the galley (Broke some plates) and even shut down a generator. It also threw my PRS Bernie across the room and into a bulkhead. I kicked myself for not putting it in the case while I made a head call. But except for a few dings it played GREAT..What a fine instrument..

    Well, it sucks that it happened. But, Way cool that it survived

    Those dings have a great story to tell. My guitars have their share, but certainly none are "thrown across the room into a bulkhead in 14 foot waves".
