&&. Additional comments from the owner:

" Nanna" is a very high quality build, tough, go anywhere boat with nice classical lines. A steady platform at sea and very comfortable at anchor she has been a fine home for us for just over six years. The interior is exceptional with lovely woodwork in 3-4 different woods. Despite being a rather heavy boat she moves under sail in just 3-4 knots of wind!

April to July 2017 Nanna got herself an exterior check-up, in turn resulting in a total make-over from gunwales to keel. Stripped down to bare fibreglass, repairing a few older repairs of unknown age and quality -just in case- before applying 6 coats of epoxy resin, two coats of grey epoxy primer and Antifouling (Pettit Vivid) overall the hull was dry, showing a "blister job" that was at least, as far as my knowledge goes, 18 years ago. Properly done with epoxy, glass and epoxy fillers but time passed I s a fa to so it was due to redo it anyway. I also sanded down the Topsides and faired a zillion of little scratches before applying two coats of epoxy primer and three coats of polyurethane "oyster white" paint. Unfortunately, due to a lack of communication with the yard staff, I was not allowed to spray paint, but could only roll and tip. Well, that shows, but it's glossy ad durable, and "next time over" it's a fairly quick sanding and spray job. Yvan, the yard manager is a skilled spray painter. For myself I have to admit that painting in hot humid weather is not my strong point.
