Thrusters were removed and replaced by Vetus equipment, a
single 160 aft (operating off the engine starting
batteries) and a double 160 installation forward, again
with their own batteries and charger. All three Thrusters
may be operated from either the wheelhouse or from the fly
In 2007, the hull was examined and
found to be free of osmotic blistering, but very humid.
The vessel was hold out of water in September 2007, the
gel coatings were plained and shotblasted off, and after a
suitable drying period, six coats of West Epoxy were
applied together with a filling and fairing coat. A
barrier coat was applied prior 2 coats of antifouling
paint. All the through hull fittings and the respective
sea cocks were replaced by new items. The above treatment
is guaranteed for a five years period by the contractor
who carried out the works and s transferable to a new
owner. The vessel as relaunched in the summer of 2008.
Although the vessel has had a minimal
use since purchased in 2001, all mechanical, electrical
and safety equipment has been maintained as for sea going
In June 2009, the vessel was hauled out
for drying period, polish and antifouling. She will be
launched at the end of July.
