Rebuild

The rebuild by Nick Gates & Co.,  was in no way a cosmetic make-over, but a full structural restoration to a very high level, that addressed any and all the problems present at that time, and has pre-empted future reoccurrence by improvements and modifications that will keep this vessel strong and seaworthy for decades to come.

The 2,570 hour restoration included the following:-

Replacement of

Decks,
Coachroof tops
Windows
Cockpit
Engine, its shaft, prop and tank
Interior and upholstery
Mast rigging, sails and mast step.

At the same time

The hull was resplined, the bottom four planks replaced, timber heels replaced and bronze floors fitted in place of the steel ones.
The ballast keel was removed, shot blasted, epoxy coated and replaced. 
Fore and after deadwoods were removed and replaced .
All paintwork was removed and reinstated.
New hatch sail and overall summer covers supplied
