Many pictures around.  

None of the ones i have seen show how much of the boat must be cut away to repair the damage.

i suspect  its substantial 

that is a big, technical repair

Volvo would have you believe a disposable fisherman just sort of evaporated, and the boat had a bit of a fender bender. Nothing to see here, move along.

Word on the street is the boat will be shipped to NZ and a new bow airfreighted out and fitted there in NZ. 

 

So is this boat like granddads  hammer,  It’s had 3 handles and 2 heads, but it’s still grandads hammer ?

 

This Boat has now had a new full transom rebuild after running aground in the last race and now a new bow section in this race.
