Yacht Voortrekker is in need of restoration

I was told that Voortrekker is in need of repairs, the decks are not good?

Can I do the job I was asked.

I can but I would rather one of a number of boat builders I know do the work instead and I supply the materials and back up?

The picture was scanned from my collection of older magazines.

I knew Bertie well enough, the last conversation we had was when he phoned me about making a rudder for another class of yacht.

Bertie and Altec Voortrekker finished a remarkable second in the BOC around the world race, this was in a rather old cold moulded design.

Remarkable would be a good word to use.
