Currently she's on the dry, had the bottom stripped of 34 years worth of abuse

Two fresh coats of blue anti foul and I'm some $$$$ lighter,lol
All the through decks have been removed, and re bedded with BT, what a pain in the backside that job is.
Motor mount off, and transom beefed up a little, just to be sure.
New deep cycle battery and solar battery keeper.
Sails were only a few seasons old, and look in great shape.
Removed and hammered back into flat all the stanchions.
Teak removed, grab rails were in such a bad state, I will epoxy and spar varnish, until funds allow replacement, I can fix the hatch rails, companionway board in very good shape.
Boat was under a tarp for the last few years after being completely re done inside(except cushions).
Cushions is another winter project I need to fix, foam is mildew(y) but intact, so I just need to get them re covered after I've cured the foam issue.
Chap I bought it from seems to have looked after it somewhat, there are a couple of soft spots, nothing that needs attention this minute, except maybe the port chain plate area.
Anyway, more pics once I can persuade my three year old to tell me he put the camera <sigh>.
