Professionally surveyed in 2001 and subsequently epoxy treated by Osmotech, surveyed again in September 2006. Standing rigging renewed in 2000 and new Genoa furling in 2002. All seacocks renewed in 2001. Engine serviced in 2015 and checked in 2015, light use since. Electric anchor windlass and feathering prop recent.
My husband and I bought this boat in September 2006 and changed her name from "Far Away" to "Sula". We have installed an electric anchor windlass and self feathering propeller with rope cutter. We have sailed the Blackwater and East Coast keeping her at the Blackwater marina and lifting her ashore every winter where she was meticulously maintained by my husband until his unfortunate death in April 2015, hence regrettably putting her on the market.
