"Saltpetre" is a very nice example of these roomy family cruisers. She is particularly suited to the East Coast with her shallow wing keel. Her present owner purchased nearly 2 years ago and sailed her to Holland in 2017. He has fitted a new Raymarine plotter and had a new water pump fitted to the engine. She has remained ashore in 2018 and the owner is most of the way through removing the old antifoul back to the original gelcoat.
