Extensive reburbishment was carried out in 2006 which included replacement of all standing and running rigging.
The hull was Copperbotted and a substantial stainless steel shoe was fitted to the base of the keel to enable drying out.
A new Betamarine twin cylinder 14hp inboard diesel engine was fitted.
All electronics were upgraded which included the following:-

NASA Clipper Duet Wind and GPS repeater.
Garmin 128 GPS.
NASA AIS radar.

Two large solar panels were fitted to the coach roof to supply the five batteries.
The owner at the time set the yacht up for serious single-handed sailing with long sea passages in mind and the yacht was circumnavigated around Ireland.
An Origo 2000 meths cooker has since been fitted and any gas installations removed.
The yacht was given an insurance survey in September 2014.
This is a classic little ship that will look after you in a storm and the fact many of them have been circumnavigated around the World successfully and consistently won their class in successive Fastnet races is testimony to their build and longevity.
Currently ashore Belfast Lough.
