Refit account from September 2013:
“Not a big surprise that this 43-year-old-boat needed some aluminum hull plates replaced. We removed 4’x8’ sections on both the port and starboard side. In order to get at the problem sites all the salon furniture – table, settees, port and starboard bunks, hanging lockers, bookshelves, needed to be removed. Once the new plates are installed, we will with surgeon-like precision fair it to the hull then prime and paint the surface to a finish that no one will know we were there.
On the mechanical and electrical side rudder bushings and steering cables were replaced and a new radar unit installed. Hound is now in shape for another season in Caribbean”.
Due to participate in the 2015 Caribbean 600.
