Early 2018, the hull moisture content was found to be high and a professional repair was undertaken. The hull was scraped clean to the gelcoat and the boat was left on the hard standing to dry. Checked regularly, once the hull was in good condition, it was epoxied, primed and anti-fouled. At the same time, a previous repair to the keel joint was in poor condition. The keel was dropped, the area repaired and the keel re-bedded.
The topsides and superstructure were cleaned and polished and the boat was launched April 2019.
