RECENT WORK

While out of the water in 2018 the current owners to advantage of the opportunity to properly remove all of the many years buildup of bottom paint and get down to a nice clean wood surface again. The repainting was done with input from Petit experts to make sure that the lead keel and wood was properly treated. While in the barn and dried out a bit for the first time in years every seam in the entire hull was also gone over, vacuumed, and repayed with either underwater and topsides seam compounds for a very tight and long lasting result. The old tar pitch in the bilge to keel joint was also removed and replaced with expensive but naturally antimicrobial beeswax, like high end yachts of yesteryear. The two masts and booms, spreaders, plus wood blocks were refinished from bare wood with System Three epoxy and epoxy paint. The masts are now tan with white tips and will have much less maintenance than the previous varnish over epoxy. Virtually all of the bronze and stainless-steel fastenings on the masts/booms was replaced with new. A visual inspection of the rigging did not show anything obvious, so it was all reused. New white oak cockpit cap trim pieces were also laminated up, epoxied and clear finished. The cabin top teak hand rails were also epoxied and clear finished with System Three products. All of the bronze deck hardware on the boat was also stripped and buffed out prior to rebedding with new bronze fasteners. The teak toe rails were sanded and rebedded on the new deck. The forward hatch was taken apart, cleaned, rebuilt and screens made for it and the cockpit entrance. The winches were cleaned, lubed, and pawls-springs replaced. The areas under cockpit cover including cockpit seats and entrance deck were also sanded and revarnished. The entire interior was also refinished/revarnished as needed and all the wall hooks for sail stops etc. replaced with stainless steel ones. A new electronic depth indicator was installed in the cabin wall so it could be easily seen from the cockpit and joins the existing bulkhead compass.
