After a complete re-furbish of the boat, now known as Tovah


Boat Condition:  The hull is in excellent condition has been completely repainted with Interlux Perfection Paint.

The cabin still needs some work on the bulk head and new cabin lights.  The cushions have all been re-covered.

The sails are in excellent condition although they are the originals.  I have bought new sail covers for them.

Upgrades by you or other owners:   A marine head was put in by the previous owner.  We recovered the cabin cushions, repainted the boat, and added a GPS and stereo system. We used Seadek for anti-skid because the Perfection paint is very slick when it is wet.

Planned projects:   

We plan to re-do the bulkhead next winter, and install new cabin lights. New cabin lights have been installed, but no pictures are available.  We went with brass lights.
