Owners comments

Since the present owner purchased the vessel in 2007 the following repairs or up grades & improvements have been made by professional craftsmen.   The single 12 volt system with extra alternator, charger & battery & two bilge pumps have been replaced by a larger set of domestic batteries and an over rated dropper for the VHF & bilge system. Both bilge pumps have been replaced by higher rated 24volt units.   The cockpit roof has been replaced with a balsa core extra GRP single piece. Extended to proved cover for the high seating above the stern cabin. Extra height was incorporated & disguised with dropped eaves so head room for 6’4” across the width of the vessel. Dedicated radar stand so that unit can be run safely with people on deck. New heavy duty covers with two side entries and rear full length rear screen. All can be rolled up or removed for easy use. The large Simpson Lawrence stainless steel davits have been removed but a large stainless steel & oak decked bathing platform has been added with 4 support arms for extra support. A full length steel keel wide band has been added for protecting the hull from stony groundings. A permanent, but easily removed pair of grounding legs have been custom built & fitted which also aids ( short legs ) pontoon boarding.   This vessel has been well maintained with many original documents & invoices have been kept detailing major works. The vessel has extensive onboard storage, ( 2 folding bicycles only occupy 1 under bow berth area ) to make extended cruising easily achievable. Current family cruised from Carteret to St Cast with no need for shore support for 10days.   All serviceable parts removed are available including, chargers, alternator, spare propellers, awnings, front & rear screens
