When I purchased Windrush II she needed lots of work. I ended up replacing a good amount of the deck, about half of the cabin roof and sides, replaced 5 planks above the waterline. I also had to repair the main mast as it was rotten where the spreader block was. The bow sprit also had rot issues and had to repair it in several places.
The Taft rail and spindles had to be completely replaced along with the bulwarks from the bow to the stern. Basically everything form the deck up had rot issues. In the Galley I had to replace the counter top and teak molding and part of the bulkhead behind the galley
The floor of the head was rotten along with part of the cabinetry which I replaced all of it and installed new fixtures and shower hardware.
On the Electronics side, I replaced all the original wiring, the old home made panel to a new Blue Sea DC and AC panels, new Raymarine radar and GPS displays. In addition I added a new Furuno SSB, Furuno Fax 30 and a VHF with DSC and GPS capability.
The old Perkins 4-107 was leaking and tired, so I repowered with a new Yanmar 3GM30 which pushes it along just nicely at 5 knots.
The wood heater was replaced with a new diesel Dickinson Newport Heater along with a Red Dot heater plumbed to the engine cooling system.
The rigging was in decent condition, but replaced all the halyards and job sheets
We are now ready for our first offshore sail to California and beyond.
