The Project

We found the boat in a yard in LA. She had run aground off the Hotel Del Coronado, sat rolling around in the shallows for a few days, been salvaged in Chula Vista and and trucked to the yard in LA.
I bought the Schock 35 since I'd been racing these boats for a while. She was trucked back to the same yard in Chula Vista. There I worked  on the boat for a while then moved to a yard in Oceanside (closer to where I live and more convenient)
The boat was a wreck! The rudder and keel were ripped out, there were big holes in the sides, the engine was completely waterlogged and there was sand in every nook and cranny of the boat. The instruments and electronics were shot, the standing rigging collapsed.
