She is wintered ashore at a local sailing club annually. Her keel bolts were replaced in 2006 and the pivot bolt replaced at the same time (spare pivot bolt available). She has received a good deal of regular maintenance over the years. Her topsides were last painted in 2016, her decks are GRP sheathed marine ply (repainted 2015), her engine is serviced twice a year and her sails are good. She currently lies ashore at a local sailing club. A 2007 survey is available.
