Service History and Construction
The hull on this Buchannan sloop is made of 3mm steel which was hot zinc finished inside and out when built. The keel is of heavier steel and ballasted with lead and iron in cement. There is an deep bilge sump and a large water tank in the keel (not in use). In 2008, the exterior hull was shot blasted and spray coated with Jotamastic 87 before repainting. During this process any part of the hull where thinning was detected was cut out and re-plated. Jotamastic 87 is also used for interior hull protection, except in parts of the bilge where epoxy tar was applied. The decks and coaming trim were completely removed in 2004-5, and new stainless steel scuppers were fitted throughout. The decks were re-laid with marine ply beneath teak, bedded with Sikaflex. The join to the cabin sides was also underpinned with stainless steel, to minimise contact between wood and the original steelwork. More recently the interior covering boards were removed and new steel frames added to strengthen the cabin support.

The teak decks, cockpit seats, coaming, hatches and cabin sides were treated regularly with Semco teak sealer, which maintains the colour in the teak with minimal rubbing down. The interior teak was varnished with Epifanes above deck level, and French polished below.
