We purchased the 1974 Westsail 42 in 2009. It needed alot of work. The first item on the agenda was to change the name to SV Cornelia, named after Barry's mother, who turned 102 this year (2017). Both Cornelia and her namesake have an elegance and maturity that only comes with age. Both love to go sailing.
Barry takes you through the various stages of repair. From 4 haulouts, a rig replacement, installing a new bowsprit, engine overhaul, complete interior renovations and electrical rewiring, deck resurfacing, new dodger and new awning; new mainsail tracks....and more.
Have a look at the sections below for pics of the transformation -
