Last on this owner's list of things to consider are the aesthetics and the dynamics of taking on such a large project. While a vast array of improvements are planned, whenever possible and practical, the owner wants to stay within the original design framework of this boat. Any external changes to the vessel are to maintain the original character and lines. In some ways, it's much like a restoring a vintage car, where maintaining the vehicle's character is paramount. This owner, however, is very keen on making technological and operational improvements wherever possible as long as the basic nature of the boat comes through. We'll be addressing aesthetics in more detail in later blogs.
