Freja had her bottom done six months ago and all of the bright work has been beautifully re varnished in October 2015. She needs a touch up to really shine now.  She is ready for 10 years of sailing. We have sailed her in the Puget sound and she handles a good sea. Actually very responsive and a great pleasure to sail. Reluctant sale as we have to return to New Zealand due to family health problems. She can be viewed on her slip in Port Orchard WA. Contact Craig:
