The New Day Chronicles

History
6/14/2011 3:45 PM
A good friend and former Tartan owner Ike Lawton spotted New Day in Bert Jabin's Annapolis boatyard in the fall of 2007. A T37 in shiny dark blue Awlgrip paint, she looked sound, seemed to be just what Admiral Suk wanted and what Captain John could sail. A quick call to surveyor, diesel engine mechanic and broker lined up the parties who soon summarized that she was indeed sound, her engine started and there were no big issues. When we found out she had been a tax donation to an unsuspecting kids camp and they were horrified at the yard storage fees we offered 'way less than the asking and walked out that night looking for marine transport to Rhode Island.

Hull #16 means production in 1976 means 33 years old means all kinds of things could be giving up the ghost. However, the surveyor found few issues and evidence of many upgrades. Sure, the rudder was partially delaminated, the engine, windlass, autopilot and wiring were definitely from the 70's. The Autohelm manual is copyright in England and predates Raymarine. However, besides the new Awlgrip the refrigerator compressor and plate looked new-ish, the large Force 5 oven and stovetop were new, the bow hatch was nearly new, there were no meathooks in the rigging, the winches were old but not original, the poly water tanks were not aluminum so probably replacements, new holding tank and plumbing, replacement AutoStream feathering propeller - how could I resist?

Our lovely T34 Capriccio went onto the market and New Day went onto the hard at New England Boatworks for the rest of the season.



 I'll provide a running maintenance list as separate blog post. For the next three summers (2008-10) we pretty much daysailed her around Narragansett Bay, lived aboard as a floating condo (great views!) and got used to the old gal. I have to admit even daysailing to Wickford RI and Bristol RI are pleasures enough for some. The winter of 2011 would change all that.
