arrived to us worn and weathered, torn and tattered. Looking
beyond a previous restoration that had been poorly performed,
the beauty that lay below the surface was evident. All deck housing
and most of the hardware was missing. Rigging was torn and without
block and tackle. Deck was warped and peeling, brass was covered
in varnish and was severely tarnished. There was only minor hull
damage and no rudder or sails.
