This old girl arrived in a very weathered state needing new decks and a big clean up. The client also wanted a boarding platform added. Motor was lifted out and sent off for a rebuild. Decks and interior striped out. A new ply sub-deck installed and sealed then a 6mm skin off mahogany with Kauri strip’s. Working with compound curves and keeping a straight line bow to stern was fun. All the bronze and brass work got a polish up and re-installed. There was no crome/stainless work on this boat all hand made fittings in brass and bronze engine is a lexis straight 6
