Tollie is lucky. She was built very well with timeless lines. She has had the fortune of cruising the coast of Maine for almost 90 years. Most of all she has had caretakers who love her and care for her.

Tollie is an embodiment of the idea of “a classic of a bygone era”. Her mere existence at
this stage is testimony in and of itself to the sound and time-tested construction
techniques used to build her as well as the quality of materials used in the original
construction. Granted she has had significant help along the way to assist her in the path
to longevity – for example the frames have been “sistered” which consequently requires
new fastenings. This as well as many other refits and restorations of various aspects of
the vessel have been undertaken over the years. In more recent years she has had the
good fortune to be cared for by a highly knowledgeable owner, i.e. designer/boatbuilder,
who also has the skills and facilities to properly maintain her. For example, the vessel is
stored in a cold shed with a moist dirt floor, the second-best place a wooden boat can be
in the scheme of things.
This vessel has been involved in an extensive restoration during the past few years
by a professional boat yard, the first part of which was documented in the previous
survey of this vessel in 2012 – this first part involved structural restoration – for
example many of the frames were “sistered” with new fastenings, new transom,
stem repair, the ceiling in the fore peak was completely replaced and new interior
furniture was built in on the starboard side
This survey documents the finishing of the new interior to yacht standards including
varnished interior trim with fiddles, installation of furniture on the port side,
installation of doors, drawers and lockers, installation of holding tank system, head
compartment sink, head compartment door, installation of icebox, butcher block
counter tops, stove and galley lockers.
