Many projects are completed, some projects need completion. I did the big-ticket projects, you will finish things up quite easily. Bruce King made these to be better built than most Ericson boats. The Teak interior wood has been restored professionally. Lots of new items too many to list, new electric panels, new alcohol Dometic gimbal stove, new Engel fridge/freezer, new never used composting toilet, bottom job done and sanded all ready for ablative paint.

Dependable 2QM 15hp Yanmar diesel runs nicely.

More than 6’ headroom, good capable long-distance cruiser. Deck is solid. Chainplates solid. Wheel or tiller steering with custom built wind vane. Harken roller furler. New fuel tank. New through hulls. Plumbing is done and water tanks cleaned and empty.

Selling due to I don’t have the time or interest to finish her up and I live some distance away. She really needs to be out sailing.

Still some projects left like refinish floor and ceiling, some wiring, paint upper deck, toe rails. Lots of parts and pieces too many to list.
