Remarks
Freebooter has recently (2017) been stripped of all old antifouling back to original gel coat, been treated in a few small areas for potential osmosis, had 3 barrier coats of epoxy applied, and is ready for extended trouble free cruising. The addition of dual station steering and engine controls, plus bow thruster, makes this yacht easily manageable in tight maneuvering situations.
The wheel house was custom built by Cec Quilky, NSW shipwright of renown. Being slightly longer than the standard design, with teak joinery and armor plate glass, this makes for a protected steering position, with good visibility, and the aesthetics of a timber fit out.
