2007-2010 "Right now she lays ashore in Braunschweig Habour for major repairs. The deck, the hull and cockpit needed to be reconditioned very badly. Special attention will be paid to the whole electrical system and equipment. Along with this the shore-power hook-up will be changed to european 230 V standard. Additional repairs or replacements are considerd for the propane system and the head. Unforunately, also one AGM-pack shows now, after fifteen years of serious operation, signs of fatigue and needs to be retro-fitted."
