“Sea Lark” was built originally on a white oak keel with 1 1/2? Philippine or Honduras mahogany planking on white oak sawn frames on 8? centers. Five fir stringers and one fir hull clamp were installed on each side. Bulkheads were marine plywood. The plywood decks, originally canvas covered, had been sheathed with fiberglass except for the side and aft decks that had the original teak decking.
“Sea Lark’s” hull has been rebuilt, the frames have been replaced with laminated oak frames. The original
planking had been stripped, re-painted and re-fastened with 1 5/8? bronze screws. The mahogany planking is in good condition. Many frames have been replaced, and new keel bolts installed. She has a new transom, recently painted topsides, and her bottom has been repainted.
Forward is the V-berth cabin. The dinette is aft and to port across from the U-shaped galley with Princess electric stove with oven, double stainless steel sinks and a Tundra refrigerator with freezer compartment above. The stove had a stainless steel surround and hood vented by a revolving cowl on deck.
The raised salon is furnished with a convertible couch. Aft is the stateroom with double berths on each side, en suite heads, accessible from the passageway as well as the stateroom, with a stall shower and a large cedar closet. The bridge deck was furnished with a helm seat and an additional fishing chair, as well as an upholstered settee and bench. The interior is clean and attractive. New mattresses had been installed in the berths. The interior joiner work has been recently varnished. There is a new pull-out couch in the salon, and the vinyl upholstery in the dinette is original and in good condition. The salon is carpeted, and the aft stateroom is in very good condition.
