    Not a big surprise that this 43-year-old-boat needed some aluminum hull plates replaced. We removed 4x8 sections on both the port and starboard side. In order to get at the problem sites all the salon furniture table, settees, port and starboard bunks, hanging lockers, bookshelves, needed to be removed. Once the new plates are installed, we, with surgeon-like precision, faired it to the hull then prime and paint the surface to a finish that no one will know we were there.

September 2013

Not a big surprise that this 43-year-old-boat needed some aluminum hull plates replaced. We removed 4’x8’ sections on both the port and starboard side. In order to get at the problem sites all the salon furniture – table, settees, port and starboard bunks, hanging lockers, bookshelves, needed to be removed. Once the new plates are installed, we will with surgeon-like precision fair it to the hull then prime and paint the surface to a finish that no one will know we were there.  

On the mechanical and electrical side rudder bushings and steering cables were replaced and a new radar unit installed.  Hound is now in shape for another season in Caribbean. They will participate in the RORC Caribbean 600. Follow the action this February at this site: http://caribbean600.rorc.org/
