In the works

Part one complete, sea trial and surveys will be the week of 7/7

She is pretty inside and out, a survey was done in May and it all came back with only 10 minor suggestions, ( so they say ) we'll see what my guys come up with

Anywho, looking forward to this

Beautiful boat! Too much wood for me, though.

Be sure to thoroughly inspect the wooden mast.

I would focus on building your stamina, and keeping your joints in shape, as you will surely be using them alot as you keep that beauty in shipshape.

She looks beautiful and well cared for. I take it survey found mast and deck in good shape. Did you have a riggin inspection?
Only thing I would say about sea trial is to try out EVERY system...water, heads, hot water, a/c if any, all instruments and bring a diesel mechanic with you on the trip and push the engine hard once it is at operating temperature.
Hope all goes well!

The way it's step up right now, Both brokers, the Marine surveyor and Diesel mechanic from Perkins will be there for the sea trial, we will then move to the yard for the haulout and inspections

The Marine and rigging inspection will be done by Mike Herlihy who is a veteran trimmer of the Big Boat Series and SAMS certified.

According to the owner the mast, main and staysail boom(s) were inspected and revarnished in 03 and running rig was replaced also in 03, by my observation, it appears to be true, however, that's yet to be proven

Now, as far as the woodwork goes, My wife is a freak, she's a high maintence baby that love to get dirty, ( I think she was a pirate in her past life ) so she'll be right there slinging the elbow grease with me, but it appears to be a few years yet before a refinish is needed.

Also, the deck is glass not teak and the tankage has been upgraded from steel to 100gal SS fuel and 100gal SS water

Pretty boat, but way too much work... wooden boats are a lot more work than sailing...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
