The deck and mast has one coat of Pettit Undercoater and two coats of Pettit Off-White Easypoxy. The interior wec sanded and coatedwith two coats of Pettit Interior White.

Luders Marine is the company that built Ted Turners American Eagle…She is still sailing out of: americancupcharters.com We now include a 8’3” inflatible dingy with a electric motor.
