OBR Brian Carlin

Martin and Frederico lay out and look at the damage to their J1; apparently it was ripped in a squall the day before. Martin: "There are two battens that are gone, and the pockets are also gone. We've got a big rip in one of them. It's going to require a lot of work." We see crash cam footage of the squall from the night before. Martin and Frederico consider the work that's needed. Frederico: "I don't know. It seems pretty bad." Martin: "I think this is a good opportunity..." Frederico (chuckling): "...to pass the torch." [Maybe they're talking about swapping it out for a replacement J1 at the next stopover?] Brian [Carlin]: "Do you think it's fixable?" Frederico: "Yeah, but here... maybe not." He shows the ripped batten pocket.
