Seal is good shape, the hull is painted blue with white bottom; seats, spruce mast, boom, gaff and forestaysail boom and oak trim are all varnished, deck canvas is a cream/yellow color. The canvas was replaced in 2001. Interior is white with relatively new oiled teak flooring. A fiberglass layer was applied below the water line at some time before Mr. Moore purchased the boat on February 8, 1997 for $9000 from Carol Reinish, of 45 Marvin Circle, Falmouth, MA. Seal was maintained by the boat builders Eldred-Cooper in Woods Hole, MA prior to Bobís purchase. Mr. Cooper indicated that he had maintained the boat for many years, and the boat was originally located around New Bedford, MA.
