Extra Information +
"She was given a refit about 8 years ago including the epoxy/fibreglass sheathing to the decks and cabin to make her easier maintenance. She also had the hulls strengthened. My father spent a lot of time at the boat, visiting her at least once a week even in winter and always doing little jobs so she was constantly maintained.
However, she is now in need of a bit of TLC. For example, she needs anti-fouling, and the running rigging, (ropes) probably need replacing, some work to the cock-pit where there is an area about a foot square which needs strengthening, painting & varnishing again soonish, and the windows will need re-sealing soon, although they do not leak at present. Plus the interior will need repainting and probably modernising for most people's taste and of course a loo. I am not very knowledgeable about boats but I don't think any of it is too difficult or too big a job but it's best to paint an honest picture I think. At the end of the day, she could still be sailed at the moment".
