    Does anyone know the story behind one of those two losing its Carbon rig?

    I think might have been 'Chill Pill'?

    I heard a rumour that it fell down within a month of being launched due to faulty installation but no one seems to be able to confirm.

    I guess that would have been about the middle of last year.

    I believe that one of the rigs was from South Africa and one from New Zealand.

    So that is either Mojo or Chill Pill. It isnt attitude cause that was a Lambourne rig. And I would have known if it was that boat.

    According to one of the guys that built it one of the bottle screws had only a few turns and it broke out.
    It was Chill Pill
    It was about 2 years ago
