    The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    If no machine shops how about a tech school with a cnc program? Our local Junior College has an excellent tech school open to do projects.

    An alignment jig and a press would be easier. The shaft section we can see is not difficult to straighten.

    Underwater putty, is it even possible?

    I have always had good luck with Marine Tex. Cures underwater fine but sensitive to water temp. https://www.wholesalemarine.com/marine-tex-epoxy-putty-repair-kit-white.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIh9XO4sGU6wIVxkXVCh2p-Q8tEAQYAyABEgLCyvD_BwE

    Do your crew just quit trying?

    When all else fails pop out the Blooper and look cool.

    Do your crew just quit trying?

    Way back when I did foredeck on a Morgan M36T. In light airs it could be frustrating but we never stopped trying. I think for us it was less about racing against a fleet and more about challenging ourselves to do everything to the best of our ability. We did much better when we stopped looking at everyone else and instead sailed against ourselves to be better than the last outing. We knew how the boat should perform and did our best every time out of the slip.

    How much do they cost compared to building a tub? I have six or seven laying around I bought cheap years ago. I will make you a deal

    Lusting on Yachtworld

    If the Sabre Spirit interests you but a bit to big the Alerion Express 33 might work. Siminlar price range with tiller models available. With the electric winches would be a comfortable single handed boat.

    I am sure I am the only one who cares but why was Mark Twain not in this years race? I cut my teeth doing foredeck on an S&S wood IOR tonner.

    What is the deal with the electric shitter? Maybe it is just a joke and I missed it.

    Craigslist - Not mocking

    A friend on Kentucky Lake was looking at this Soverel 33. At one point there was a trailer but not mentioned in the listing. No affiliation. https://westky.craigslist.org/boa/d/grand-rivers-1987-soverel-33/7037256392.html More images here that should give a better idea of overall condition. https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1987/soverel-33-3615270/

    That is what I was wondering. Thanks My interest is in the qualification process and how breakage may effect an entry. Only reason to focus on WOXI at the moment is due to the repairs being done. My question was wether or not they would have to do a qualifying event or passage to prove the repairs.
