Figaro V

With the continual restoration, Figero V keeps looing better and better, the boat has been refitted with a new engine, genset, instruments, boom, main sail,mast track and roller cars, genoa, roller furl unit,stainless stantions and bow pulpit.

The old blue hull paint was changed a year or two back, in white the boat looks cleaner to me, the re painted decks and none slip surface really have cleaned the topsides up. The construction was done in laminated mahogany and has a stainless steel back bone the full length of the hull, a very rare build method?

New information on Figero IV and V has just come in, read about it in the link above.
