Broker's Comments

Much as though I hate to use old cliches, in this particular instance one just cannot be avoided. The much understated "Could do with a little TLC", is one that immediately springs to mind.
That being said, we are looking here at a girl so old she nearly beats me for years on this planet. Built in 1966, built in an age when glassfibre was laid up to be solid, and solid this boat is. There is no flex in the deck, even with my, not insubstantial, mass bearing down on it.
She is in need of a good blitzing and some general repairs and overhauling, but, there is no reason why this old girl shouldn't continue to give someone many more years sailing pleasure.
