    She's a Beaute!

    She has a shortened rudder, wonder why?
    That is definitely a Ballenger mast hinge there, and you wonder about spreading the load. Your interior shot certainly shows a healthy compression set up, as the doorway looks very square.

    Was wondering what the molding is over the deadlights inside? Conduit?

    Interesting also are the shroud plates. Can't make them out. Are they rod? How would they be attached inside?

    Picky. She needs the angle of her spreaders adjusted.

    Otherwise, how the hell did he get those fabulous topsides!!!

    Where is his waterline vis-a-vis the transom? Looks high to me. Is it adjusted UP for cruising?

    The rudder does appear "modified," like maybe it was replaced at some point. The propeller aperture is certainly larger than stock.

    What appears to be molding over the windows is just curtain track. Same stuff we used back in the '80's.

    The strongback is stock and probably does not sag because there is only minimum pressure from the mast. I'll photo the forward side, if I get a chance.

    The shrouds & turnbuckles are new and stock. The chainplates appear to be original.

    Another visit to view porgress and there has been some. According to one of the yard workers, the owner is "not around very much," so I'm not having much luck catching up with him.

    We'll start by noting that the prop is installed:

    Mast base again. They used phenolic plastic (the brown stuff), not wood.

    Saved the best for last Seems our hero did not read the latest newsletter and so did not know there was a less expensive fix than going with a Norscot shaft seal!
