Refit S&S Swan 44 Northern Child
What a valuable information data bank this is!
We just purchased Swan 44 nr 22 Northern Child.
During this winter we will renovate the beautifull yacht.
The boat is empty and there is a lot to do!
Will try to keep this thread as a bit of progress reporting.

Had some issues with the pictures.
Here you can find the main album with pictures:
We are based in The Netherlands.
Vessel is almost empty
Enterence re-arrenged (enterence at the aft cabin)
Sliding front hatch removed and created base for normal hatch
Most of the bilges are re-painted

Some time have past since last post. The Northern Child is start to look better again. Renovating a boat is always more work as expected.
As you can see here several things have been changed:
Rudder was overhauled
Created an closed anker hatch with outside de-watering
bow thruster installed
Painting outside and inside
All wires replaced
All parts removed and checked
Currently busy with a new ceiling and final decisisions on the electrical components
Next big challenge is the mast and deck layout. We never sailed with the Northern Child. So we need to base us on pictures.
