Picture and comment From Everitt Facebook page (2019): "Lightnin' Sparkman and Stephens designed One Tonner sailed by Ted Turner doubled as an Admirals Cupper for the American team in 1973. Got the rating up to the AC minimum by removing the prop shap, p bracket and propeller! Didn't do too badly either despite being very small for her 'new' rating of 30ft - 2.5ft above the One Ton limit!"

2020 July, Facebook, "The great Lightnin’ S&S designed One Tonner that Ted Turner won the North American One Ton Championships with in the fall of ‘72 and then went on to represent the USA in both the 1973 Admiral’s Cup and the One Ton Cup. To update her from her One Ton rating of 27.5ft to the Admiral’s Cup minimum rating of 30ft, Turner simply removed the prop and prop shaft to negate the engine/propeller factor and increased sail area by larger overlapping genoas."

"Today I was called to do an engine survey on a very interesting ex-racer. The boat was designed by Sparkman and Stevens and the hull was later licensed to the company that made the Yankee 38. Ted Turner won the 1972 IOR race in the Caribbean. It won many races after that. The boat has also sailed single-handedly to Hawaii. The new owner is restoring it and needs my help. The deck has curved plywood on laminated deck beams. The former owner had it for six months and then sold it to Ted Turner." with these pictures,
