Sailing Legend, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston chooses Coppercoat for his yacht Suhaili.
I had the pleasure of meeting with Sir Robin Knox-Johnston last week, to discuss Coppercoat for his famous yacht, Suhaili.
As many of you will know, Suhaili is in the middle of a full refit. Following a 5 year stint at the National Maritime Museum, she had dried out to the extent that her planking had begun to shrink. Sir Robin has recently finished the monumental job of re-fastening her. Sir Robin told me that they have already replaced 1,400 bolts, most over 6o years old!

I have offered to assist Sir Robin when it comes time to Coppercoat Suhaili, as I would be honoured to be involved 1st hand in the restoration of this amazing, world famous yacht.
I will post some more pictures here as work progresses.
