Re: Can a keel stub and stringers be repaired (hypothetical)

Everyone says that about diamonds perhaps still being there. The yard was explicit that they cut away this 'half-arse built hollow spot and built it back solid'. There is no there there anymore.

Yes, I did see the article about 'Pilar'. That was an interesting article in a lot of ways. I thought the most interesting part was the discussion of the curatorial thought process, and careful stewardship practices on the original Pilar that was paid for by the Cuban government.

I thought that the Hollywood stage set version was far less convincing than would be suggested by the way that the article author seemed to gush on about.
