Silver Wings, like any 1981 vintage boat has required a certain amount of upgrading in preparation to take her offshore. We were very fortunate that the previous owner had done a lot of upgrading before deciding to sell her and buy a larger boat. We are grateful that he had replaced the original fuel and water tanks, rewired, replumbed and replaced all the standing rigging with the exception of the head stay.

We have gone through the various systems and either inspected, renewed or replaced components and parts. We will write posts outlining the projects and explaining in some detail the process.
