    History & Construction
    Factory completed by Victoria Marine Ltd. in August 1981, this Frances has been laid ashore each winter (an overall winter cover is also included in her inventory of equipment). Her underwater surfaces were epoxy coated in 1997 and her wooden rudder re-sheathed and epoxied in 2011.
    A replacement engine was fitted in 1994.
    Her standing rigging was replaced in 2013, when lazy jacks and an outer forestay and roller reefing system were also fitted, together with the lazy jacks for the mainsail.
    Much of the modern instrumentation and the AIS and DSC capable VHF dates from 2013.
