Hull
Hull construction is entirely wood, Plywood over Mahogany 1 1/2" double laminated frames. The deck is cored, and bonded and bolted to the hull. A transverse stiffener divides the main-saloon sole, and string-ers run longitudinally on each side of the keel in the boat’s midsection. Recent yard work required a few plank replacements and over 1000 of the original fasteners were replaced. The fore deck, Gunnels have been percussion tested at 6" - 8"intervals with a phenolic hammer and are found to be free from delamination. The trunk cabin showed some signs of water intrusion. The bulkheads, where acces-sible, are free from any visible water damage or tabbing failure. The stringers and engine bed are partially visible through cabin floor hatches and engine and appear to be in decent condition. The yachts exterior decks have non-skid surface and are in good condition. The deck and cabin top appears to be securely attached mechanically. The vessels hull interior is well constructed for it’s age, the bulkheads are bonded and tabbed to the hull. The interior hull appears to be ar-ranged so that all compartments are accessible and all hatches are unob-structed, readily accessible and adequate for their designed purpose.
