Not too long ago I saw an interview with Morgan Freeman on I believe 60 minutes or Sunday Morning. It was done from his boat. You could hear the pride in his voice as he described her. I had not known he was a sailor. It was very cool.

I hope that you were able to recover the rudder to find out exactly what happened. If not, I hope what is left can tell you what happened.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The rudder is drifting off to the NW at present and might hit the gulf stream. So the only forensics are from what is left on the boat. Both surveyors are confident that they will be able to diagnose the reasons.

Good luck, and I hope it is easily repaired and preventable.

We love our Shannon 43. We fell for the classic lines...and everything seems to be done the best way it could be done, and most of the boats have spent alot of time on the seas. We will be going to Rhode Island next week to see the factory for the first time, and I am looking forward to meeting founder and designer Walter Shultz and the others. Shannon only makes a few boats a year, so its definately not a production boat. Our 1988 is Hull #19 and I think the the latest is #52.

Morgan Freeman quote on 60 minutes about sailing...."If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn't worth anything until you do something that does challenge your reality. And to me, sailing the open ocean is a real challenge, because it's life or death. There's no quarter."

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

You may be a bit lost finding Shannon Yachts in Tiverton, since they're located in Bristol.

Newport RI and Boats

I feel humbled by these great boats and in constant awe over their beauty. It doesn't help having Ted Hood's boatyard and Hinckley's sales office next door either.
I'll second that! I bought my boat late last year in Newport RI. I had the survey done at the American Shipyard in downtown Newport.

Ohh boy the boats they had there!
