Here are some photos showing the refurbishment of the forepeak and a view of the structure.

How it looked when the boat arrived

Carpet was added to the hull in 2009

Refurbishment restarts in 2011


Carpet lining replaced


You can see that the covers for the cabin seats have been replaced, as were those for the forepeak, which are under the sheet. The fill-in at the front of the berth is removable, as is the V fill-in (see first photo) above it. A waterproof bag with the third anchor (a grapnel) on a chain and warp and a drouge with a long line are stowed there, which means they are easily accessible.

The new fabric is waterproof but has a cloth feel

In use 2012
