Refit: MJM 34

Vessel: MJM 34

Name: Choripan
Owner: Barry F.
Hailing Port: Portsmouth NH

The GIBY crew put an MJM 34 together again after the boat owner experienced an unfortunate and destructive grounding in 2019. On arrival, the deck was removed for rewiring the boat, replacing the systems, installing the motor mounts, and removing and reinstalling the running gear. In addition to damage caused by the impact of the grounding, there was extensive damage found throughout the boat due to saltwater intrusion. Delivery of this project required involvement of almost every GIBY service department – fiberglass, systems, mechanical, carpentry, and paint. Thanks to the coordinated efforts of these skilled teams, the boat will depart GIBY in 2020 as good as, if not better than, new!
