Don’t know if this is because of TR  and am not seeing a way to search these forums.  

  Nireli Farys in Tel Branora, no longer has a Sadrith Mora destination on her ship list, but I do see you guys have two destinations to the mainland.  Did it overwrite her Sadrith Mora?   Is there another way?  Because I have been jumping around to the other destinations and cannot find a way to get there.

According to the map in these forums there is still supposed to be a boat going there?

According to this map in the right side images (for the optional plugin TR_Travels.esp) the Tel Branora ship connects to “Marog” and “Ildrim” but not Sadrith Mora, it seems the shortest trajectory to it requires passing through Marog and Helnim,

so yes, it would be that plugin which removes Sadrith Mora, probably because the vanilla Construction Set only allows 4 travel destinations.

Right, this was mentioned in today's topic.
The current route in question is like this:

So some people are unhappy about it and want it changed - alright! That's why this is in an ESP at the moment.

Basically, we are sticking with vanilla's four travel lines limit (Enchanted Editor is out, period), so if we remove the Tel Aruhn travel or redirect that to a small boat, we coud have Sadrith Mora connect to Marog, which would be a one-additional-stop travel.
The Tel Aruhn-Sadrith Mora connection wasn't in vanilla, so it would not be an actual loss.

To expand on that, in vanilla Morrowind NPCs offering travel services can only send the players to a maximum of four destinations. As TR has decided to aim for a seamless integration of Vvardenfell and the mainland, that means alterations need to be made to the vanilla travel network to achieve a halfway logical result. The distant connection between Tel Branora and Sadrith Mora was, as such, removed in favour of shorter distance routes.

As this means notable changes to vanilla (and mod conflicts), TR has so far kept the travel changes to a separate plugin. At latest when the routes are merged into TR_Mainland, vanilla dialogue will be updated to reflect the new routes.

As far as fast travel between Tel Branora and Sadrith Mora is concerned, I'd suggest taking a ship between Vivec and Tel Branora and the guild guide between Vivec and Sadrith Mora, otherwise Tel Branora->Marog->Helnim->Sadrith Mora would indeed be the route to take.

If a major travel route is removed from vanilla imo it's enough that the new destination replacing it then links back to the original one, but that's not the case here,

(note on the four travels limitation: more can actually be added cleanly by hex editing, no enchanted editor required, and those merge well in the CS. it's still not proper procedure for a single main file, but for a plugin it wouldn't require more maintenance than Travels already does)

What could work is for someone to make an esp that adds another NPC to the docks of Sadrith Mora and Tel Branora that gives the travel link. This would only be for people who really want to have that travel link but still want TR_Travels.esp loaded.
