Description: SHINOLA is a custom finished all teak interior sailboat that has spent most of its life on the lower Chesapeake Bay. She has a PHRF non-spin rating of 168.

The boat is in overall good condition inside and out. But as with any boat this age there are a few maintenance items that could use some attention.

Non critical maintenance items that could be addressed:

1. Soft spots in foredeck due to water intrusion in the deck core material.
2. Rubrail varnish should be renewed.
3. Bilge repaint.

She has proven her past two owners many good racing and cruising days and has many upgrades over the past few years. Currently located in the Bahamas, Southern Exumas en route back to Norfolk,VA between April 20th and June 1st, 2015.
