Good Bits, the bulkhead has been replaced and bonded in and beefed up in such a way to prevent water from seeping in the plywood and weakening the rig, at the same time new improved chainplates fitted, new standing rigging and extra internal mast supports to permanently sort out the age old Sonata problems around the bulkhead, this work was carried out in 2014 to a high standard. The Hull has been treated with Blakes Two Pack Epoxy in 1993 as a preventative measure against osmosis with no issues, the vessel has been hauled out each winter on the hard with a regular programme of maintenance,upgrades and repairs.
Plastimo Roller furling Genoa, Hunter yard trolley strengthened and reinforced in 2011,will go on a road trailer,(car transporter) making transport by road an option, the lifting keel is a centreplate that swings in a stub keel, has had the pin replaced in 2014 with a stainless steel pin.
Jupiter comes with all the cushions and headlinnings making it suitable for cruising and overnight stays, the boat has not been striped out for racing ?
Choice of engines, either a 8hp Mercury two stroke, had it for some time but purchased from new and still a very nice engine in excellent condition or a 6hp air cooled Mariner, old but serviceable, can adjust the price depending on which engine goes with the boat.
Small leisure battery wired in mainly for instruments with solar panel for charging
Bad bits, the hull needs a re-paint, the old international two pack polyurathane has begun to fade, wear and chip and could do with painting, this is reflected in the price ?
