She has been re-engined with a Yanmar 2GM15 ( age and hours unknown ), last serviced in 2020. Also in 2020 her running and standing rigging was replaced, her mast and boom were reconditioned and she had a new Sanders Sails headsail with Facnor roller reefing fitted and her lifting keel plate was replaced with a new stainless steel one.
