2004 Refit

In 2004, USA 2842 underwent a complete refit by Stephen Estes.  It was a real labor of love- every piece of hardware was removed, every hole was cored, epoxy filled and redrilled.  All work was done to meet class regulations and to optimize for racing.  The pictures in the posts below are just some of those taken during this process-  many more are available by request.
