Bowman 45

A yacht that's been around the world twice with its experienced owner and skipper, Moonshiner has been used to her full potential and seen many far flung places in the worlds oceans. But over 40 years later, her teak decks (having already been replaced) were showing their age once again.

A technically complex project, we had to remove a lot of old fittings, carefully remove the old teak, repair hatches, make spacer shims for deck gear and rigging, paint them and manufacture some custom bolts for some of the blocks. That was all before we could design and fit the new synthetic teak decking. The photos show just how well it turned out and the level of sympathetic detail we put into this project.

Key facts;

  • Location: Guernsey, UK
  • Areas: Complete ring deck (sides into fore deck and round the aft deck with panels across the coach roo
  • Design details: Full margins all round with swept side decks into a centre king plank with an older style squared off snape design
