Considerable effort and expense went into this project to transform a retired fishing vessel into a spacious, comfortable long range cruising motor launch. The current owner (a master mariner) supervised the rebuild in Nelson 2013/14. Major work included the design, fabrication and installation of a new wheelhouse, superstructure and accommodation section, above and below decks. The vessel was rewired, with new plumbing, pipe work and fuel system fitted as a starter. Full details can be supplied. LEWIS J was originally built in Gisborne 1975 by J.L.Primrose to a Breekveldt design (plans available). All upgrades have been completed to MNZ Survey standards
