Subject: M32 Hull #41 Purchased by my son


Back in April, my son Aleksander puchased M32 #41 in Port Orchard, WA. Since then he has moved it to Seattle and then to Olympia.

Sadly, her masts did not stand the test of time and had to be removed. We did score a new main mast from a guy at the boatyard but need to cut it down a little to match the original mast size.

Along with her masts, the doghouse hasn't handled the weather very well and will need to have the outer shell completely rebuilt. The mahogany inside seems to have done well though.

Yesterday, we had her pulled out of the water and put in dry dock so we can work on her. Transmission leaks, cabin repairs, and replacement of the toe-rails are the immediate concerns.

Fingers crossed we can get the cabin fixed before the cold weather starts setting in.

Adam (Alek's father living vicariously through his son right now.)
