Re: Wooden Sailboat Tabitha sank 08/01/2019

Rescue by helicopter done from life raft floated well behind the boat is not too difficult. We had a crew member picked up this way from a zodiac a cable length behind HMB Endeavour 4 years ago in a gale off Jervis Bay on our way to Sydney from a failed attempt to get to Hobart.

The cause seems to be an important water ingress.
This was my fathers yacht many years ago, I had a lot of happy childhood memories on her, she was a twin screw version, twin keel rampart, was originally commissioned for the Earl of Shrewsbury in 1954. She really was a classic beauty, both my father and now Tabitha have now passed away, was so sad to read this. I would really be interested to know now a year on if she was ever salvaged??? Any information would be grateful.
