Elixir: New deck on this Hinckley Bermuda 40

Carol Lynn came to our yard with new owners in the fall of 2016.  The boat's name was changed to Elixir, and that is not all that would change on board this classic Hinckley Bermuda 40, starting with the deck.  The original paint had started to lose it’s luster.  We removed the old paint, and laid out a non skid pattern with crisp borders and waterways. We applied the highest quality Interlux Awl-grip products and the results were spectacular. The color chosen for the non skid was Moondust and the remaining areas were painted Cloud White.


In addition to upgrading the deck's paint we addressed some mechanical issues. The boat had an original chain driven mechanical autopilot and the total weight of it includingcomponents was north of 300 pounds.  This archaic system was removed and replaced with a brand new Raymarine EV400 Autopilot with a type 2, long, linear drive.  A modern Raymarine STNG network was installed to allow for more electronic upgrades in the future.


Elixir was launched in July with a festive champagne toast and the new owners happily delivered her to her new home port in New Jersey.
