– "The standing rigging was all made new around 1998 by the previous owner who had her for 20 years. He spared no expense with the poured socket bronze fittings and he is the one who took apart the masts and boom and re-glued them with epoxy resin glue. I had it all apart of course when I shipped her across country in 2014 , and I refastened the spreaders and all of the mast fittings and the sail tracks with new stainless when I re-assembled it all, also put 6 coats of spar varnish on the masts. . I inspected all cables when I had them down and found no sign of distress anywhere." Previous Owner
