Searunner34 as previously built had 2 common issues that require mitigation in order to preserve them for future enjoyment. These have been major projects that were undertaken with a lot of time and funds, talents of the shipwrights involved. When we took this Searunner from the previous owner in October of 2010, restoration was the only way to proceed to preserve the original intended service of the boat as a cruising trimaran. Both issues require the original designers consultation and guidance. John Marples personally reviewed the status of the project in February of 2012 at Fish Island Marina in St. Augustine, FL and the resulting advice duly applied to the restoration project that finished in August of 2012 @ Oasis Boatyard/ Marina.
