7/8-inch mahogany AGBA strip planking on plywood stringers. A method which produces a very strong but also lightweight hull.

Keel bolts renewed.
Electrical - fully rewired, twin 12v batteries controlled by 3-way switch, shorepower with 240v sockets in galley.
Waeco 12v portable coolbox/fridge.
Hot water system - heating by engine with immersion heater for when on shorepower. 32 ltr calorifier, Jabsco pump for hot and cold water to galley and basin in heads.
