She is not looking too good. Looks like the hand rails have gone, as well as the Solar panels, Wind Generator, and the most horrible, is the noted absents of her mast, self furling head sail and boom.
I cant imagine the pressure it must have taken to de-mast her. It is terifying .
Word from the slipways is that we still cant access her yet. As you can see from the pictures she is still in a precarious place, and safe access is still not possible. I just hope that the water stay around the engine, until we can get to it and try and repair the damage, before rust sets in.
It is tough thinking about what to do next. Part of me is thinking about selling her for what little she might be worth, and starting again with another boat, in a while when I have time and money. But part of me wants to repair her and see her floating again. The only thing I am sure on is that rebuilding will take lots more time and money.
Not sure what to do??
Thanks Ash for the pics!
