A good example of how repairs can be worked around almost any budget; Heron No. 1291 came to me requiring a new deck and some keel repairs. Her owners decided to carry out some of the final re-finishing themselves. Her new deck is marine plywood re-enforced with fiberglass. Her centerboard case was found to have some damage due to poorly driven screws, so a new logs where fastened to the lower edge and new screws where fastened through from below. She had her deck fittings re-installed and a new set of buoyancy bags fitted.
