I now have both crews aboard Thunderbird 5 as Tandemeer broke her rudder post webbing. She is out of commission until she can get hauled out and repaired. Anyone have a spare $10k laying around? Seriously, based on my years of experience working in boat yards as a contractor, it will cost at least that much to haul her, remove the rudder, cut the rudder open, scoop out the old foam from around the old rudderpost webbing, weld new webbing in place, re-foam, re-glass, re-paint and re-install. I simplify, but that's the basic repair needed. I hope that nothing else horrific is found once she gets cut open.
This mission is essential! We have medical supplies for people in need so it WILL happen. Thunderbird 5 is taking on the extra crew, provisions and supplies and readying for departure Monday night for a daytime arrival in Bimini.
