    VOR 2017-18

    Worth emphasising that the deck is the most difficult complex and longest time to build individual component. They only had to replace about the last metre of the deck. The rest was fine. The shame was they couldn't recover the mast and keel. Keel fin and mast were both deliberately destroyed during the recovery effort. Pretty much everything else on the boat was salvaged and reused. Which is a lot of pretty expensive gear. The new hull included a huge amount of newly built internal components - like new keel box, bulkheads and the like. Structurally there is a lot of new boat. Thanks for clearing that up. Though never saw any footage of them dropping the rig on the reef.

    I thought that the Vestas was a new build. From the reports I saw, In the end they threw away the wreck as beyond repair and built a new boat? So not a Frankenboat.
