Rudder and shaft packing glands were cleaned, inspected and repacked. A new Cutlass bearing was installed. Less than perfect thru hulls were replaced. All components were rebeded and installed with new hardware. Before launching in August of 2016 the bottom was painted with Micron CSC bottom paint.

The only problem with these boats was the lack of access to service the mechanical and electrical systems, so new custom hatches were built to allow any mechanic to get to anything that may require servicing.
