You Will find my name on the big blocks lead in the kiel! (Mark)
Good luck with the restauration, its ŕ great classic
disign yacht with excellent sailing capacities.
Hello Mark! I am so happy to hear from you. I have not yet seen your name in the lead but I do remember seeing that it was noted on one of the many surveys of the vessel. I believe you are indeed part of the history
of this wonderful craft. I am led to believe that your fathers name is Hendrik? My understanding is that he owned the boat and finished it himself. I can tell you that when I purchased the boat it was FULL of heavy mold
and I had made the purchase
thinking that I would have to rip all of the interior
out and throw it in the dumpster. But now I am happy to report that I have been working in the boat already and have found that I hope to be able to save about 90% of it. And I am happy to tell you that the interior
is of very high quality.
The steel in the hull
is in excellent condition and all of the surveys claim it is of the highest quality build. You should be very proud of your father. Did you work
on the boat too?
You said you were sad to see the boat in its present condition. I want to tell you that I have been looking for many years for a boat like this to rebuild
for my own use. I have worked long and hard for others, and now this one is for me and my family
. I want you to understand that because of the wonderful work
of your father and his friends... this boat will be refit
and I hope it will in turn take me and my friends for a loop around the globe. With confidence!
Here are a couple of photos of the level of my work. Rest assured I will do this level of work on the Kompier.
I want to hear more from you. Please check back with me!
The first table is ebony and rice paper with ink soji brushwork on top. The base is steel with applied paper.
The boat is a triple cockpit
Gar-wood. Fully restored.
The third table is a tilt top with a book matched mahogany top and contemporary custom metal base. A very modern interpretation of a table by a famous 1800's furnituremaker here in the U.S.
