After all deck hardware and hatches were removed, there is no other way to get the decks off than to chisel and power-plane them off. Once this is accomplished, the decks are sanded, skim-coated with Awlfair, and primed with Awlgrip 545 to fill in any voids and made smooth to be a receptive, impermeable surface for the new teak.
The Lewmar hatches will get new Lexan lens, o-rings, and gaskets. The Ocean Air hatch screens will also be replaced. In the rigging department, the mast will be repainted in the original Pure White, and a new lower section will be added to the headstay foil. Steve Tofield and the rigging crew will also service the windlass, replace halyards, service the in-boom furler motor, and replace all seals. The motor will also be set up to take a drill chock in case of motor failure.
Since this yacht is a world traveler, it was time for a major upgrade in electronics. New systems may include AIS, Raymarine RD418HD radar and eSeries chart plotters, and satellite data and voice communications systems. Mechanically, our team will install new engine mounts, clean the heat exchangers, adjust the valves on the engine, and change the cutlass bearing, service the Maxi prop, and straightened the shaft.
