The boat was brought to Brightlingsea by lorry late November 2004 and unloaded into a shed where light and power was available.
Engine, tanks, ballast and electric's were removed, bilge's cleaned out and keels removed. New engine bay surround and engine box built. Underside of cabin and cockpit floor were painted with bilge paint, and unwanted hatch openings filled in. An Iroko grounding strip was bedded and bolted onto the keel as were the rebuilt bilge keels all fixed with new bolts. The forward end of the keel was fitted with a s/steel rubbing strip, while at the aft end a s/s shoe was bolted on to support the rudder, along with bushed transom fittings and a tailor made tiller.
The standing headroom cuddy built over the main bulkhead has four marine grade windows fitted, also a new sliding door and battery box.
Iroko coamings were fitted around cockpit edge with oak Samson posts at aft end.
The whole boat inside and out was rubbed down, made good/filled, primed, undercoated and finished off.
A 'D' section PVC rubbing strip was bolted on around the gunwales, four grabrails are bolted onto cabin top along with new mast and lights. Stainless steel guard rails were made and fitted plus port and stbd mid ship cleats. The whole boat was rewired into two new batteries, and extra lights fitted.
The engine was refitted with new mountings, exhaust system, and pipe work for the fuel tanks, along with water intake and anode.
Manual and electric bilge pumps have been installed.
Below the waterline the hull was primed and antifouled and when launched in July 2005 no leaks were found.
Best cruising speed is with engine at 1600 to 1800 rpm.
