    OH! If it makes you feel any better, The bottom looks fantastic! Seriously though, I'm hoping it's warmer where you are than where I am. Did you get her out or did you leave her?

    We did retrieve her. It was me in 40° water and 40° weather removing the sail, righting, and pulling it 1/4 mile to the nearest ramp. I think the bottom is ok, but I have no idea what the inside looks like. Being on the water overnight sunk it.

    Boat is at home now.

    What do you guys think I should do? I honestly don't have the energy for repairs. Should I try to part out? What even are my options?

    Maybe give the boat and yourself a rest. Looks like it was a tough day on the water; not bragging but I've had worse. Don't worry about it for awhile and see how you feel after a few weeks.

    It probably should be no surprise that these boats sink if left in the water over night. It's all those screws for the centerboard gasket. Check out www.sailflow.com for wind and weather forecasts.

    Was the rigging damaged at all? If not you might not have too much repairing to do. I'd agree with Canracer, let the dust settle and the circulation return to your toes, then see where you are.

    Thanks guys. Rigging is fine. The rudder is missing a corner. I haven't checked the centerboard yet. If the rudder is damaged, hard to imagine the centerboard intact.

    I'm going to wait a little longer before I decide. I'll post some pictures of the damaged areas soon.
