Hull #43  Sail# 41857

New owners (2016): Jim & Corinne Bradac, Myersville, MD


Rescued Mischief (#43) from Port Annapolis boatyard in August, 2016. She apparently had been on the hard there since at least 2011, as the Frers 33 Class website noted she was for sale in April, 2011. I am the 4th owner; second owner, Peter Henry, raced her out of Annapolis in the 1990s. She has kept the name “Mischief” through all 4 owners. After purchase, sailed her north on the Chesapeake to Gibson Island Boatworks on the Magothy River where she was brought back to life over the next 11 months. Water had leaked around the port chain plate deteriorating much of the core in that area. Core on port side was repaired, port bulkhead removed and replaced.  Chainplates on both port and starboard were cracked, so new ones were fabricated and installed. The rod rigging was totally replaced. Hydraulic backstay adjuster was rebuilt. Portlights and hatch covers were totally crazed, so these were all replaced. Applied a coat of grey Interdeck paint to the deck. Replaced all the rotted cordage.  Her Dacron sails were in reasonable shape, save for a few mouse-gnawed holes. These were patched. Installed a Tides Marine Strong Track on the mast. Purchased a black aramid fiberpath GP race mainsail and 155% flex black technora race genoa. Sanded the bottom, applied a new coat of MicronCSC. Replaced the cutlass bearing. Mischief was finally relaunched in July, 2017. Raced her over the next four months on the Magothy River and on the Chesapeake. She sails like a dream.
