Just came in for engine re-work and adjustments, on her way back out the door back down to VA shortly for the winter. This little woody, came in as a shell of a boat. Stripped down to just its ribs, she needed a full rebuild including an entire new hull, interior build, floorboards, center keel and the list goes on and on. The boat was taken down to the bare minimum frame work and basically recreated from scratch. With special care to alignment and weight, as to make sure she was still sail fast on the water when back to racing. Another barn find, this ole gal has been sitting in storage for a few years and need a total refit, down to the bones.
