The hull below waterline up to about 6” above waterline was fiber glassed over- this was done before the current owners purchased the vessel- there was no delamination or blistering noted in 2020.

The interior of the hull was noted in sound condition- the frame ends show light deterioration- the keel, bulkheads and breast ties were found in good condition where accessible.

Brokeru0027s Remarks

Remarkable boat that has cruised the East Coast of US and back to TX by a knowledgeable cruising couple.

She’s due for hull side paint. We have an estimate from local vendor for under 10K.
