1963 Rawson Ketch ... Forever

I feel for you wood core guys, my 1963 Rawson ketch is solid fiberglass. It is a bullet proof 5 kph. It is heavy, 12,000 pounds in a full keel 30 foot ketch, but I am in no hurry. It stores everything I need and then some. The surveyor said it would outlast me!
For the wife and I, we live aboard summers while we cruise. So I will keep her for the duration. Plus I can't get over the compliments that I get for having an plastic classic in Bristol condition.
