The original integral keel tank has been replaced with a custom tank and the sole refinished. The headliner is molded fiberglass (not cloth or wood) and has just received a new look. Importantly, she has a new set cushions that look like they just came from the canvas shop.  There is double-tank propane locker, aluminum tanks, and solenoid system (stove missing though).   However, there are a few odds and ends of remaining work to do:  The boat never had a shore-power electrical system and battery charger (most of the parts come with the boat).  Sails are excellent, but the boom is wood and of the rolling variety - it works well, but you might want to pick up an aluminum boom and set it up with lazy jacks.   All in all though, the boat is a real head-turner and the upgrades are minor.  She can be sailed and motored as is.  THIS IS NOT A SMELLY BOAT! CLEAN AS CAN BE. She is currently on the hard with new bottom paint. On hard storage is only $200/month and launching has been paid upfront when she was hauled.
