In January of last year I was at Bridgemarsh Marina where I saw what looked like a prototype Alan Buchanan Nantucket Clipper.* ‘Reynardini’** was for sale. On Monday I was at the Marina again and saw the same lovely craft. Her new owner(s) were preparing her for an exterior repaint.
Preparation is 70 to 80% of the task. Laying the foundation is important. I was amazed that her seams were very tight, despite the boat having been out of the water for over a year. When she’s done, she’ll be very good. It looks as though her new owner(s) have a beautiful classic yacht. I hope they will have a lot of fun sailing her.
