Truly remarkable small boat
, I don't really want to let her go but I am currently a 4 boat
owner and need to be realistic. I have been picking away at this project
for over two years and what follows is a detailed description of what's been done and what still needs to be done. The boat
has been hauled out for the last year as work
and life have got in the way.
construction, no core
anywhere except the cockpit
locker lids and small raised section on the foredeck. Cabin
top is close to an inch of solid fiberglass
, I'm not making this up you can put a tape measure where the dorade vents are... The arch where the mast
is 1.25" solid fiberglass plus there is a teak
tree trunk of a compression
post. Insulated overheads and hillside, nicely finished locker trim. Top notch construction/joinery everywhere you look.
Nice isomat anodized spar, internal halyards, steps up the mast
, matching twin 15' whisker poles each on its own track.
6 x Barlow bronze self tailing
external chain plates.
CLC eastport pram in bronze and teak
chocks on deck
New newfound metals bronze handrail fittings with new stainless tubing.
4" cast bronze dorades
prism in fore deck
New A.B. refrigeration
Newly installed Taylor's 030 stove/oven
Double sink in galley
Fresh and saltwater taps (foot pumps)
New chart table
New teak and cane locker doors in salon
New teak trim in galley
Bronze and stainless grab rails inside
740 plotter on swing mount
tp32 tiller pilot
2x 100 watt solar panels
on swivel mounts on stern rail
everywhere, very cool antique fitting in the salon
Fresh tan kiwi grip on the deck
cooled) runs like a swiss watch, (~650 hrs based on history
and what I've been told but no way to verify)
The boat was built for serious cruising but only ever sailed from ft Lauderdale to the st John's river, she lived most of her life in the fresh water
of the river where I found her and bought her from the second owner.
What still needs to be done:
There is an integral 50gal fiberglass water tank under the vee berth. Nice big clean out/inspection plate, the tank needs to be sanded and recoated inside (2 gal kit of food
safe epoxy paint
included). Currently running off a 30 gallon bladder.
is currently a bucket, small fiberglass holding tank
still in place.
Some vee berth cabinetry was cut out by the previous owner and still needs to be repaired, the headliner
in the vee berth was never installed.
The fuel tank
has a small leak. It is cleaned and empty and currently running off a 6 gallon tank in the cockpit
. The engine
needs to be removed to get the fuel tank
out for replacement...
She did fill with rain water thru the cockpit lockers while I was gone. Just above the floor. The teak and holly will need to be replaced. None of the windows leak, she is a very tight and dry boat other then this mishap. Outside is dirty from sitting in the yard. Inside still shines like the pictures. I lived on the boat for the last year before hauling her and with basic clean up she is liveable and sailable but it would be nice to see her fully restored.
A very worthwhile and rewarding project
for the right person.
cover is toast. Full batten main, staysail, furling jib
and Hank on jib
all very serviceable... The asym is from my Seawind
30 and too big for this boat but I made it work
