This boat has been lovingly restored, under cover, in Cornwall, regrettably personal circumstances force me to sell prior to completion of the internal fit.
As the following photographs show, the external restoration has been carried out to the highest standard, with complete replacement of the wood from the Gunwales up. Inside the woodwork has been sanded and painted and some frames repaired, the interior has been fully painted. The hull is in excellent condition and was fully chaulked.
The work so far includes;
New Deck, New Rubbing Strakes, New Hatch, New Windows, New Mast, Long keel removed and shot blasted, New Gun Metal keel bolts, and a completely renovated engine refurbished and installed by Cellar Marine Ltd, Stern Tube and glands by Norris of Isleworth.
The interior includes a factory refurbished Baby Blake Toilet. All wood inside and out was sanded down to bare wood and repainted/treated by Blakes Ltd Products. Most of the original fittings have been retained, except for the rudder, which along with the stainless steel fittings, is completely new.
All that is required to finish the project is the Standing rigging, Sails, and some carpentry in the cabin, and minor electric's.
