Re: newbie from Swansea Uk OOD34
Unfortunately my boat doesn't have a fancy backstay tensioner. It's been located in Trinidad in the Caribbean for the last 25 yrs or so and thus hasn't been modernised. I think the work I'm doing now is the first since it was made. Hopefully I can add another 20 years of life into this old girl. I'm putting in a new engine, full rewiring and led lighting, new rigging and lifelines/stanchions, redoing all thru hulls, recovering all cushions, revarnishing the interior etc etc. I'm in full swing now and doing most of the work myself.
