Additional Information - Refit Details
  • The chainplates were extended down to the base bulkheads which were reinforced and tabbed to the hull. Extension turnbuckles for the chainplates are visible in the main salon.
  • In 2007 the hull below the waterline was sanded down to bare fiberglass, all osmotic blisters (non structural) were ground and epoxy filled. The area of the hull forward of the keel was structurally reinforced with fiberglass as a preventative measure and the hull was painted with 5 coats of barrier coat epoxy paint. This work was done by the renown premier shipwright Paul Rosenthal who specializes in bottom refinishing projects. The bottom has not shown any signs of blister recurrence and regular diver maintenance and an appropriate haul-out and bottom painting schedule has been adhered to.
  • All thru-hulls were replaced with new bronze thru-hulls prior to the bottom refinishing project.
