BLUE SAPHIRE:

MARAUDER 28 FT  |  SKILLS: laminating, woodworking, plumbing, painting and shipwright  |  PROJECT DURATION: 8 weeks

The vessel grounded on a rock in the Tiri Channel and pushed the back end of the keel back up through the hull causing major fractures in the fiberglass hull and cracking the keel floor and joinery. The vessel was removed off its keel and interior joinery was also removed including the galley and the main saloon. Fractures in the hull were cut out and repaired. Keel floors and keelson were replaced and all joinery was reinstalled. The final job included rebedding the keel.
