Owned by Michael Warr and his wife, Laurie Nicholson. The boat has been in the Nicholson family since at least 1963. From the waterline down the hull has been professionally sheathed in Dynel and epoxy with carbon fiber tapes embedded in the laminates. Many sister frames and butt blocks and the transom was replaced in about 1993. The spars are painted.
