    Hull & Deck
    In 1985/86 the vessel was gutted and rebuilt from stem to stern at Rybovich Boat Works. This refit included every conceivable system on the boat. Everything mechanical was replaced including engines, v-drives, AC, and appliances. The entire interior was replaced with a lavish use of teak paneling and trim and granite countertops. The galley, electronics, tower, cockpit, covering boards, and engine room were all completely redone. She got a new tower, teak transom and exterior cabinetry. She was literally a new boat.

    Today she remains in excellent condition having had a refit over the last couple of years.
