As a result of a late autumn storm, Swan 44 Moondance broke free of her mooring in Long Island Sound causing significant damage to her hull, deck, rudder, and systems.
As the logistics of trucking the boat from her present location were difficult, JBY sent technicians down to perform temporary fiberglass repairs to make her sea-worthy, re-launched, hoisted the sails (reefed) and delivered to Jamestown (with powerboat escort).
After a very large and well-coordinated project between all departments was accomplished she was ready to set sail again by early summer. To name a few, tasks included interior/exterior re-lamination to large impact areas on hull and deck, numerous fairing repairs and painting of the hull. Re-building of the rudder. New toerails , new teak side decks, new stanchions, pulpit, and pushpit. Extensive re-wiring due to water ingress.
In the end, she was restored beyond original strength, and looking like new.
