As she is at the moment Jan 2013

As she is at the moment Jan 2013 Medusa as she is today - Starboard side As she was for Sale 4 years ago

Medusa is a 30ft John Hanna Tahiti Ketch built 1957 lying near Truro, Cornwall, UK

The heads and cabin are starting to be removed so I can get to the frame and beams which need replacing

The deck and upper side planking needs replacing, the colours of many previous coats are now
showing through she is looking very poorly with all the paint coming off

Five or six Beams need replacing as once revealed many have been burnt to Charcoal.

I have until the end of April to get her fit to sail - as I will no longer have this mooring.
