Boat History: This boat was a “rescue”! The previous owner “had too many projects” and he was very happy to hand it off.
Since the last owner’s “restoration” the floor boards were renewed and a bottom “flotation” styrofoam was taken out. A plywood cover on styrofoam over the plywood planks would have potentially trapped moisture and was taken out to avoid the risk of damage to the plywood planks. A partial re – rigg was necessary including Vectran upgrades for the halyards.
