she has been sailed in the summers in New England and kept at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine in a shed
during winters. During the 2012-2013 winter she had an extensive refit. She was fully repainted in flag blue Awlgrip,
and a shoe was installed on the keel.
Several mechanical upgrades were made on TOO ELUSIVE, most
significantly her steering system and rudder bearings. Her aft cabin had a complete rebuild while most of the main
salon also was rebuilt, removing and rebuilding including crafting, overheads and replacing all the wood. A new nav
station was built and installed with all new electronics.
