MarsudeThis is the first Blog of Marsude 

She is a Ben Lexcen designed 33 foot yacht and the first ocean racer designed by Ben Lexcen ... because of his low math ability, she didn't quite rate as a one tonner ... but she has been successful over many years at club level racing and has completed the Sydney Hobart at least on one occaision. 

Marsude is a triple diagonal cold molded cedar sailing vessel ... except for where she is four diagonal layers at the mast region. She is dynal sheathed ... much of which needs repair.

We bought her about two months ago and she is now on the slip at Botany Bay Yacht Club where we are stripping 40 years of antifoul and damage from her underwater line ...

This is a long term project but in every way worth the effort. 

Now I just have to work out how to upload a photo or two ...

Photos are of Marsude as we began the task of restoring her to what she should be ... and of me after a day of removing decades of old antifoul ... under all the mess Marsude is a beautiful vessel
