Description: For sale Kettenburg K43 Hull #7 ~ �Aikane�. She is a classic wooden sloop race/cruiser. Over the past 3 years Aikane has been completely restored by a professional Artist/Boatwright to nearly new condition. With a dedicated new owner and a relatively small amount of effort Aikane could easily become the prettiest and fastest Kettenburg race/cruiser on the water. She is currently set up for living aboard and cruising and just returned from a 12 month cruise from Port Townsend, WA to the sea of Cortez and back to San Diego.

Here is what has been done so far (over 90% of the work!):

� She was wooded and completely gutted in 2008:
o 54 laminated white oak sistered frames were added....she is SOLID now!
o 4 planks were replaced
o Additional floor timbers and mast step support
o New blue-water cockpit. Purple heart structure and beautiful teak lockers, raised sole with over-sized scuppers.
o Completely re-caulked below waterline (new cotton and seam compound).
o Topside seams were meticulously defined/repaired, accentuating her gorgeous lines.
o All new electrical and plumbing systems. Every wire, every hose all new.
o All thruhulls replaced with Marelon or Bronze.

� Completely new interior with many unbelievable hardwoods:
o Book matched Ebony and Tigerwood floors. Heavily structural floor with white oak beams.
o Fiddle-back maple cabinets with gorgeous Koa panels.
o Maple butcher block countertops with ebony trim and porcelain sink.

Equipment: New Perkins 4108/velvet drive engine (now with about 250 hours)
� All new standing and running rigging and Barient 28 winches
� Original varnished spruce mast and boom
� Recently inspected MONEL water and fuel tanks (120 gal of water and 60 gal desiel).
� All new varnish on cabin sides and cockpit coamings (everything else is work in progress��lots of varnish on this beauty!!)
� New windvane installation (the highly sought after BRONZE Aires #4 steers Aikane beautifully!)
� New Icom SSB radio and Ray Marine Chartplotter/VHF.

Here is what still needs to be done (just enough to put your personal stamp on her!):
� A bit more brightwork to do (toe rails, hatches, other details).
� Cock pit sole and decks need to be repainted.
� Aikane has a new mainsail but needs new foresails (or a roller furling system).
� Some trim, paint, and detail work should still be completed on the interior.
� I was planning to put a shower in the head, but never got to it.....the floor is marine ply now, but sink, cabinets, and head are all new.
