Willow is a 1979 Young Sun "Westwind" 35 inspired by Bob Perry and built in Taiwan with the same shipyard professionalism as the next door Tayana yard. She is a heavy double-ended full keel blue-water sailboat that draws 5' 6". I spent a good part of last year working on the boat’s systems, all of which are in fine repair. I also hauled her, power washed and scraped the hull, and painted it with anti-fouling paint ten months ago. The Yanmar three lunger was recently rebuilt, has about 800 hours on it, and runs like a watch. The hull has been Interlux epoxy coated and is 100 blister-free. The few cracks in the exterior teak has been epoxied, then left to weather naturally. I have recently published a novel and will be busy with publicity in the coming year, so Willow is going up for sale.
