Well the maintenance on Merva came to an abrupt halt as multiple buyers came on the scene – two on the same day. So refinishing the covering boards and annual varnish refresh is going to be done by the new owner as they see fit.
We are taking on Euphemia II but nothing happens until sometime in September – when Merva goes to its new home (presumably in Tacoma, WA) and we bring up Euphemia II.
We will miss Merva – it is truly a fine vessel in very good condition. It never, not once, nor in anyway, let us down.
