A beautiful craft undergoing maintenance the vessel was surveyed within a boathouse on the banks of the Medway. Using ultrasound the thickness found good with minimal loss but a difficult one due to the slope of the floor and wet mud hindering movement. The main concern was the hold under foredeck which had skin fittings on and below waterline.

These were difficult to get to and had apparently flooded the area before but reason unknown. The job was rectified and completed by the owner
